TGI Fridays to Donate Portion of Carlo's Rainbow Cake Sales to GLSEN

TGI Fridays, the iconic restaurant brand known as the authority for bringing people together to socialize, invites Guests to enjoy the festive flavors of the rainbow and indulge in a slice of Carlo’s Bakery Rainbow Cake. Each layer of sweet cream frosting and rainbow-colored vanilla cake make this dessert the perfect way to celebrate Pride month. In support of the LGBTQ+ community in June, TGI Fridays will donate a portion of every slice of Rainbow Cake sold to GLSEN, an LGBTQ+ youth advocacy organization whose mission is to create more safe and inclusive learning environments for LGBTQ+ youth as well as students of marginalized identities. 

"For more than 50 years, TGI Fridays has celebrated people of all stripes, whether Team Members or Guests, we are committed to creating an environment where people can feel free to come together, socialize, and be themselves. We are thrilled to partner with GLSEN to make sure we are also doing our part in creating good times and more smiles for LGBTQ+ youth,” says Sara Bittorf, Chief Experience Officer at TGI Fridays. “Through this partnership, we are honored to drive further visibility to GLSEN’s vital work and commitment to creating the safe and inclusive learning environments LGBTQ+ students deserve.” 

“We are extremely grateful to TGI Fridays for this unique partnership - a partnership that extends beyond their generous financial support and helps fund and brings to broader, diverse audiences our mission and work ensuring LGBTQ+ youth are treated with respect in safe and affirming school environments,” says Melanie Willingham-Jaggers, Executive Director at GLSEN. “This support helps amplify the important message of promoting acceptance and inspiring change and will help drive change in school communities from coast to coast.” 

At participating Fridays’ locations, purchases of Rainbow Cake will be a sweet way to pay it forward and celebrate the unity of the LGBTQ+ community during Pride month. With six layers of rainbow-colored vanilla cake, the decadent dessert is piled high with vanilla icing and sprinkles and served with vanilla icing. Dessert lovers can indulge by the slice or enjoy the entire cake at home with friends and family.*

The Rainbow Cake is available at participating locations or through Fridays’ new online ordering at Guests can also call ahead and enjoy a completely contactless experience through curbside pickup.
