This weekend you will see the area’s most famous lemonade stands popping up everywhere. It’s the group’s biggest fundraising event of the year to benefit kids’ cancer research. Alex’s Lemonade was founded by little Alex Scott. The Wynnewood girl lost her own battle with cancer in 2004. Since then, it has become a national cause.
Friday was a day to honor the memory of the extraordinary girl and bring hope to kids with cancer. The Omni Hotel at Independence Park hosted their annual Alex’s Lemonade Stand fundraiser on 4th and Chestnut. Last year, the Omni Hotel and other local business like Lux Spa and Fitness, The Down Town Club, and Barsky Diamonds raised over 32 thousand dollars for A Wedding for Alex (a full service wedding auction). You still have time to visit the Alex’s Lemonade stand, visit the Piazza in Northern Liberties today until 2pm for their 8th Annual fundraiser. If you don’t make it out and have it in your heart to donate, please do so at Alexslemonade.org.
Alex’s Lemonade has started a running team called Team Lemon that has some awesome benefits for being a team member, run to help cure childhood cancer being the most important. This is a great way for you to get involved, keep in shape, and meet some amazing people!
Get out and support this great cause!
