Celebrating Ten Years of Alex’s Lemondae Stand
Ten years ago a little girl named Alex Scott of Pennsylvania put up a lemonade stand on her front lawn on hopes of raising money for children afflicted with cancer.
Little Alex lost her battle with the dreaded disease four years later. Alex's goal was to raise a least one million dollars a year for pediatric cancer. Alex's Lemondae Stand is celebrating it's 10th anniversarry this weekend. There are National Lemanade days scheduled throghout the country.
Sovereign Avenue School in Atlantic City, Alder Avenue School in Egg Harbor Township and Hair Culture in Galloway Township will all sell lemonade to help find a cure.
Anyone can sell lemonade and help raise funds for the Alex Lemonade Stand Foundation at any time of the year. Bishop McHugh Regional Catholic School in Dennis Township raised money selling lemondae for Alex during a recent field day. They also honored two students who survivied cancer.
In the past ten years Alex's Lemonade stand has raised more than $75 million to fight cancer. 400 research projects have also been funded nationally.
