The stand that started it all - carrying on Alex Scott's lemonade stand tradition and her dream of curing childhood cancer!
Thank you to everyone who joined us at the 2016 Alex's Original Lemonade Stand! Through the incredible generosity of our supporters, the event raised $100,000 for childhood cancer research. Highlights of the day included a fun group dance by Penn Wynne Students to Justin Timberlake's "Can't Stop the Feeling", inspirational words from Liz and Jay Scott, followed by a beautiful butterfly release to commemorate all of our childhood cancer heroes. Perhaps the most exciting part of the day came at the end when the winner of the Annual Volvo Raffle was not only present, but also happened to be a Hero Family, winning a brand new Volvo XC90, donated by Volvo Cars of North America.
Each June, on the Saturday of Alex's Lemonade Days weekend, one of our most important lemonade stands of the year is held to honor the tradition of Alex’s annual summer lemonade stand. Appropriately named Alex’s “Original” Lemonade Stand, Alex’s friends and family continue to hold her stand, which has evolved into a family fun event complete with food, games, crafts, face-painting, music, raffles, and (of course) lemonade, held at the school Alex attended, Penn Wynne Elementary School.
