Riverhead teachers ‘scooping for scholarships’ at Ralph’s


Riverhead School District teachers will be serving frozen treats next week at Ralph’s Famous Italian Ices in Riverhead to raise money for elementary school enrichment programs.

This is the second time the Riverhead Central Faculty Association is hosting the “Scoop for Scholarships” event.

Frank LoPresti, who co-owns the Italian ice shop, said the fundraiser was a terrific occasion.

“We had a fabulous time with the RCFA fundraiser in September and we are thrilled to be able to give back Riverhead’s elementary students again,” he said.

According to the district, 20 teachers volunteered for the fundraiser last year; they raised over $600.

The next “Scoop for Scholarships” event is scheduled for Sunday, June 14, between noon and 3 p.m. when faculty association members will volunteer to scoop ices for customers and the Ralph’s will donate to the fund in return.

Ralph’s is located at 309 E. Main St. in Riverhead.
