When: Friday, June 6 and Saturday, June 7, 2014
More than $112,000 Raised - Thank You!
On May 31 and June 1, for the tenth year, the Midwest area Hy-Vee stores held Alex's Lemonade Stands and welcomed hundreds of volunteers to 26 locations raising more than $112,000 for childhood cancer research. Country Time Lemonade and Sunkist was handed out by nurses, childhood cancer heroes and their families, Girl Scout troops, dance troupes and others who wanted to make a difference! Kansas City Chiefs kicker Ryan Succop helped collect donations at the Blue Springs Hy-Vee and barbecue ribs were sold at three area Hy-Vee’s as an extra treat. We are grateful to Hy-Vee, the Royals, ARAMARK, 7-Up Bottling Company, Channel 5 and all the volunteers who helped make the weekend a huge success. Over the past ten years, the efforts of many have raised more than $800,000 toward helping find a cure for childhood cancer!
Like Alex and her first lemonade stand, Midwest Lemonade Days started small and grew. One Hy-Vee store’s support for a local family has blossomed into a community effort throughout Kansas and Missouri. In addition to hosting lemonade stands throughout the year, Hy-Vee has championed children affected by childhood cancer through marketing initiatives and sponsorships, including partnerships with the Kansas City Royals and 7-Up Bottling. It is through this relationship that Alex Gordon of the Kansas City Royals, a 2012 Roberto Clemente Award nominee, became a supporter of ALSF. From one store’s efforts, the community and region have shown tremendous support of ALSF.
