It’s that time of year again!! This week marks the 10th anniversary since 4-year old Alex Scott held her first lemonade stand in her front yard to raise money for “her doctors,” to find a cure for childhood cancer. Sadly, Alex passed away at the age of 7, but not before raising 1 MILLION dollars for her cause.
Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF) was formed to honor Alex’s memory. The organization holds many different fundraisers, including Lemonade Days, three designated days in June where people across the globe are encouraged to host their own lemonade stand. Since it’s inception 10 years ago, ALSF has raised 30 million dollars, with 12 million coming from Lemonade Days alone!
Nilfisk CFM will once again hold our annual “Lemon Days,” a slight (lemon) twist on the annual Lemonade Days, but we’ve “upped the ante” this year, securing a lemonade stand at The Great Valley Farmer’s Market on Thursday, June 10th from 11am-2pm!!!!
In addition to the farmer’s market, we’ll also raise money through some internal events in our office, including a silent auction. And of course, they’ll be tons of yummy lemon treats, including Rita’s water ice (430 Lancaster Pike, Malvern, PA)!
So, while many of you live too far away to visit our lemonade stand, we hope you’ll visit one near you….or host your own!!! Take a stand for hope. And turn lemons into lemonade…
