The 5th annual Alex Gordon Classic benefiting Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF) is scheduled for the weekend of April 26-28, 2019. The tournament organizer, Midwest Sports Productions, provides youth from across the Midwest with unique and valuable tournament experiences through well-managed and highly-organized events.
Kansas City Royals left fielder Alex Gordon has supported ALSF for 11 years as a local spokesperson. The World Series winner and 6-time Rawlings Gold Glove award-winning ballplayer participates in several activities including The Lemon Mixer, meeting children who are diagnosed with cancer, and visiting youth-run lemonade stands that support the Foundation. In 2016, he was named the ALSF Volunteer of the Year! For more on Gordon’s efforts with ALSF, please visit Royals.com/Lemonade.
To help raise funds for childhood cancer research, each Alex Gordon Classic youth team is encouraged to hold a lemonade stand or other event to benefit Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation. The team that raises the most funds will win various prizes including a Meet & Greet with Alex Gordon and watch Royals batting practice prior to the game on April 27, 2019. The time will be determined. The top 3 teams will meet Alex on Saturday morning and have a chance to get an autograph and a team picture!
Money to fundraising pages MUST be into ALSF, 111 Presidential Blvd, Suite 203, Bala Cynwyd, PA 19004 by April 22, 2019 at 3 pm CST. Please note monies received may not show on fundraising pages until April 23, 2019. MSP and ALSF will let teams know the top fundraisers by Tuesday morning at 11 am CST.
