Alex’s Lemonade Days
Fighting Childhood Cancer, One Cup at a Time.
Alex’s Lemonade Days is an annual 3-day fundraiser where supporters from coast to coast hold lemonade stands to raise funds for childhood cancer research on behalf of Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF). 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.
I have partnered with the ALSF to urge you to hold your own Lemonade Stand and register for a free fundraising kit. Each Lemonade Days stand host will receive a special edition Lemonade Days fundraising kit. The fundraising kit includes materials such as posters, banners, thank you notes, fundraising tips, ALSF merchandise and more.
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.
