State College RESIDENTS HOST ALEX’S LEMONADE STAND TO RAISE FUNDS FOR CHILDHOOD CANCER

In an effort to join the battle against childhood cancer, local State College residents will host an Alex’s Lemonade Stand On July 13th from 12-5 in front of State College High School South building. Members of the community were inspired to get involved with Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation after seeing a local news story on Alexandra “Alex” Scott. After finding out how easy it was to get involved, they decided to hold a lemonade stand of their own.

 

Four generations are involved in the event and hope to have a fantastic turnout.  They will have delicious, ice cold lemonade, many baked goods, some art activities for the little ones, and possibly a few surprises! Please plan on stopping by and donating to Alex's cause.

 

Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF) emerged from the front yard lemonade stand of cancer patient Alexandra “Alex” Scott (1996-2004). In 2000, 4-year-old 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 supporters across the country carrying on her legacy of hope. To date, Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation, a registered 501(c)3 charity, has raised more than $60 million toward fulfilling Alex’s dream of finding a cure, funding over 300 research projects nationally.
