Alex’s Lemonade Stand in Cedar Grove

Alex’s Lemonade Stand in Cedar Grove

In each of our childhoods, there was that one summer day where we decided to follow the lead of generations before us and open up a lemonade stand. While most children do it for fun and curiosity, Alexandra “Alex” Scott decided to do it for so much more. At the age of four, after being diagnosed with cancer already for three years, she opened up a stand to help fund research for a cure. Her very first lemonade stand, co-run by her older brother Patrick, raised 2,000 on the first day.

When Alex passed away just four years later, her family created the Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation in her honor. Since the opening day, the Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation has raised over 150 million dollars all for raising awareness, supporting families, discovering research and bring together a community. Proving the inspiration of a young girl fighting for other sick children has lived on.

The Saint Catherine of Sienna Parish in Cedar Grove has teamed up with Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation for their fifth annual fundraiser in memory of another angel, Andrew Mendillo, who joined heaven on May 20, 2014, at just 21 months following a courageous battle with leukemia. On Thursday, August 1st, from 12-5pm there will be a lemonade stand open to the public and from 12-3pm food trucks, various entertainment such as a DJ, face painting, bounce house and more will be available. All in an effort to be one step closer to finding a cure for every child affected by cancer.

 

Come support the end of childhood cancer with us on August 1st at 339 Pompton Avenue, Cedar Grove, New Jersey, 07009 located in the Church parking lot.
