Honoring Mamacita Rita - 1401

On April 22nd 2021 Rita Fischer passed away.

She had 97 years of being loved and giving love on this earth. There isn’t a day that goes by that those who were lucky enough to get a call, a card or a funny as hell - smart ass remark, that we do not think about how much we miss her.

Raising money for the NY AIDS Walk was her passion. Mamacita Rita raised $1.4 million over 30 years.

We could think of no better way to honor Rita this year than by raising money in her honor for a charity so close to her heart.

Please join our team or donate to continue fundraising for research, advocacy and the souls taken too soon.

With love- The Mamacita Rita Family!

PS. We want to thank all of you who donated or sent us beautiful memories you have of Rita - We are incredibly grateful and honored. I woke up thinking we have a few more days until the walk and what would Aunt Reet say - and then I heard her "Change the f***'** goal to $50k already!"

Rita reaches the $1 million mark in 2015!
