Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation holds special events throughout the year, to give a special boost to our fundraising efforts. Always fun and one-of-a-kind, our special events are “win-win” propositions: attendees (and volunteers) have a great time, and we all raise money for a great cause.

Check out our upcoming and ongoing Special Events to find one (or more) you won’t want to miss!
