Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation is a national movement to raise awareness and funds to find a cure for all childhood cancers. Along with partially squeezed fresh lemonade, the two-day event will be complete with hot dogs, raffle items and a toy drive. Donations from the toy drive will be delivered to pediatric centers at various area hospitals.
Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF) emerged from the front yard lemonade stand of cancer patient Alexandra “Alex” Scott (1996-2004). At the age of 4, Alex announced that she wanted to hold a lemonade stand to raise money to help find a cure for all children with cancer. Since Alex held that first stand, the Foundation bearing her name has evolved into a national fundraising movement, complete with thousands of volunteers across the country carrying on her legacy of hope. To date, Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation, a registered 501©3 charity, has raised more than $17 million towards fulfilling Alex’s dream of finding a cure, funding over 50 research projects nationally.This summer marks the 5th Annual Lemonade Days on June 6, 7 and 8, when volunteers across the country host lemonade stands simultaneously.
