Alex’s Lemonade: Fighting Childhood Cancer, One Cup at a Time.
Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF) will be hosting Alex’s Lemonade Days June 12-14, an annual 3-day fundraiser where supporters from coast to coast hold lemonade stands to raise funds for childhood cancer research.Lemonade Days is held each year during the second weekend of June – the time of year when Alex always held her lemonade stand – to honor Alex and all of our childhood cancer heroes.
Since Alex’s first front yard lemonade stand, there have been more than 20,000 ALSF lemonade stands held across the country and world. Alex’s Lemonade Stands make a meaningful difference at any time of the year, however Lemonade Days is a time when supporters join forces and hold stands simultaneously to be a part of our largest annual fundraiser. In the spirit of Alex’s ambitious goal to raise $1 million, which she reached before she passed away in 2004, Lemonade Days weekend consistently raises $1 million annually.
As a bonus – each Lemonade Days stand host receives a special edition Lemonade Days fundraising kit. Visit LemonadeDays.org and register by June 5, 2015 to request a free fundraising kit and to access downloadable materials for your lemonade stand. The kits include needed materials; posters, banners, thank you notes, fundraising tips, and more.
