Feeling a bit blue with all of the back to school commercials and Halloween costumes already making an appearance in stores? Hold on to the summer lemonade season by taking part in National Lemonade Day on August 20. To clarify – this day isn’t the same as Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation’s National Lemonade Days, the weekend in June where supporters across the country hold lemonade stands to honor the time of year when Alex held her stand. That being said, we're on board with any day where we can celebrate our drink of choice and leverage it to help kids with cancer! Celebrate summer, National Lemonade Day and contribute to the fight against childhood cancer in August.
Have your own lemonade stand!
We’ll send you a fundraising kit full of materials to help with your stand. Plus, you can whip up lemonade recipes from celebrity chefs! Alex Guarnaschelli and Melissa d’Arabian provided recipes for ALSF's National Lemonade Days, which are now available online.
In addition to holding your own lemonade stand, an easy way to support the cause is to stop by one of our sponsors who are holding campaigns in August like the ones below:
