The 5th annual Alex Gordon Classic benefiting Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF) is scheduled for the weekend of April 26-29, 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.
