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

Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation holds special events throughout the year to boost our fundraising efforts. Our one-of-a-kind – and always fun - special events are “win-win” propositions. Whether we are dancing the night away at The Lemon Ball, enjoying delicious food at one of our culinary events, partaking in a stair climb at one of our Lemon Climbs or running a 5K at The Lemon Run, adults, kids, families and even volunteers have a great time while raising money for an important cause.
