Patrick Scott

Data and Information Manager

Patrick is Alex’s older brother and has been involved with Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation since the beginning. In 2000, at 4-years-old, Alex announced she wanted to hold a lemonade stand to raise money to help find a cure for other children with cancer. In her lifetime, Alex would go on to raise over $1 million before she passed away in 2004 at the age of 8. Since then, Patrick has been involved with ALSF unofficially in a variety of ways, including volunteering, speaking, writing, and even asking for donations as a cashier at Rita’s Water Ice.  After graduating from Harvard College with an honors degree in Economics, Patrick went to work in corporate finance for several years, before joining ALSF in an official capacity as a Senior Project Coordinator.
