The stand that started it all -
10 years later!
Saturday, June 7, 2014 was a gorgeous day of inspiration and hope for the nearly 3,000 supporters who came out to celebrate the 10th anniversary of Alex’s “Original” Lemonade Stand. Held at Penn Wynne Elementary School, which Alex Scott attended, this year’s Alex’s “Original” Lemonade Stand raised nearly $100,000 for pediatric cancer research!
Many childhood cancer hero families attended the event along with Foundation supporters, Penn Wynne neighbors, and families from all over the area. They enjoyed carnival games, a moonbounce, a silent auction, raffles, and lots and lots of thirst-quenching lemonade.
Liz and Jay Scott, Alex’s parents, spoke at the event about their daughter Alex’s amazing legacy and seeing her “Original” Lemonade Stand and the Foundation grow over the past ten years. This year’s event was especially poignant because it was the tenth anniversary and because, had Alex lived, she would have been graduating from high school next week. NBC Nightly News reported on how ALSF has now surpassed Alex’s original ambitious fundraising goal of $1 million - by $79 million!
Other highlights of the day included:
- A kids’ group dance routine to Pharrell Williams’ “Happy”
- A butterfly release to commemorate and celebrate the lives of children who have suffered from or are fighting childhood cancer
- A special visit from ALSF celebrity supporter Bailee Madison (Trophy Wife, Parental Guidance, Wizards of Waverly Place)
- The drawing of the winner of the raffle for a brand new 2015 Volvo XC60, donated by Volvo Cars of North America
Alex’s “Original” Lemonade Stand was presented by sponsors Country Time and Volvo Cars of North America. Stand sponsors were Lehigh Valley Dairy Farms, Liberty Me Dance Center, Penn Fertility Care, and Sila Heating and Air Conditioning.
