We look forward to this FAMILY FRIENDLY event every year.
First off, it allows us to keep the legacy of John Kelly Taggart alive by hosting this stand in his memory. We held our first stand in 2005 after reading the Alex and the Amazing Lemonade Stand book. It was John's idea to host a stand sending all the money to ALSF (Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation) to find a cure for the Neuroblastoma cancer both he and Alex bravely battled.
The second reason we love hosting a stand is because we can raise both awareness and funds to research a cure to rare pediatric cancers.
Finally, our Grand Stand is an unbelievable amount of fun. Each year the event grows as more and more sponsors join in. In 2013 we will feature: Complimentary Carousel Rides for those who donate to ALSF, Sweet Life cookies, Fredy the Magic Balloon Man, face painting by Chris, and gallons of ice cold lemonade.
