Lemonade and Love for Sam

In Memory Of:  Sam Jeffers

Lemonade and Love for Sam

We are a community of Moms working to help Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation raise funds to find a cure for all childhood cancers.  Please support our efforts!

We do this in honor of a local child with cancer we couldn't save. Eight year-old Sam Jeffers grew up in Grover Beach with his parents and two siblings. Sam was diagnosed with inoperable brain cancer in September, 2012. He was sweet and smart and precious and Sam’s family was helpless to save him. He passed... away at his home in the early morning hours of October 20, 2013.http://bit.ly/17QwrTP

That’s where YOU come in. Maybe, with your help, we can save someone else’s child, and, dually, honor Sam’s memory. Will you please help… for Sam, for his family, for all the “Sam’s” to come? No donation is too small.

Lemonade and Love for Sam has continued the fight in 2014 against childhood cancers. We kicked off the year in the best way possible; one word: PANCAKES! The Grover City Grange sponsored and hosted the most delicious pancake breakfast for us in February and once our tummies were full we delved feet first into the Grover Heights Elementary Penny Power Coin Drive. For the whole month, the Dragons asked family members and friends, hosted their own stands, looked under the couch cushions, and made a huge CHANGE for kids with cancer! We were honored in March to adorn our lemonade stand in black and orange for Mateo’s rockin’ Benefit Dinner/Silent Auction/Raffle (Mateo’s Journey) and finish out the month with our friends at Happy Time Preschool for a beautiful fundraiser and dedication ceremony to Sammy. Come April, we took over the entrance to the Moo La La Boutique Sale at the Santa Maria Fairgrounds, spreading awareness and cupcake-covered smiles. June was a great month to join forces with the Cancer Mommies of the Central Coast, Be The Match, Jack’s Helping Hand and United Blood Services in Arroyo Grande to increase awareness, encourage people to donate and of course, sell some lemonade.

Lemonade and Love for Sam is thrilled to invite the community to our 2nd Annual Grand Stand Luau, complete with food, entertainment, music, games, arts and crafts and much, much more. Bring your family, friends and a smiling face out to the Ramona Gardens Park on Saturday, September 6th from 12-4 – You’ll be among friends! See our Facebook Event page for all the details: www.facebook.com/events/698311573539076/.

If you are making a donation on this page for RAFFLE or the PIE-EATING CONTEST, be sure to note that in the comments (for Pie Eating Contest, also note Entrants Name(s) and ages).

As we reflect on 2013, all that we accomplished and all that we lost, we wanted to take a moment to say thank you. Thank you to all the amazing sponsors, who without hesitation, donated time, money, food, supplies and their hearts. You ROCK!

Thank you to all of our supporters for taking this journey with us. We understand how heart-wrenching it is to turn your eye and your heart towards pain and suffering. It would be easy to pretend it doesn’t exist. It requires courage for all of you to read our posts, to become educated on the statistics, to follow the journeys of the children who are fighting and the children who’ve lost the fight, to pray, to hope, to donate, to fight. You’re amazing!

As we look towards 2014 and all the possibility it holds, we will remember Sam Jeffers (8), Superman Sam (8), Delaney Brown (8), Gabriella Miller (10) and the countless others. We will remember their families who grieve. We will hold up those kids who are now cancer-free and those who are fighting – Jillian (5), Mateo (2) and Charlette (18) – to name a few.

We will concentrate on what we can do today for a cure tomorrow. We will strive to empower our community and our youth with education, resources and support. We will run to the White House and yoga our way to victory. We will make lemonade out of lemons, we will light up our porches and wardrobes in GOLD. We will hit the pavement running, we will knock on doors, we will spread the word and we will save children’s lives.

We can do this, you and me - our hands, our feet and our hearts WILL continue to make a difference. One day and one delicious cup at a time. Bring it on, 2014… we’re ready!
