Olivia’s Lemonade Stand Fundraiser
Join the Battle Against Childhood Cancer! Eight year old, Olivia Johnson was inspired after participating in Alex’s Lemonade Stand at summer camp. After finding out how easy it was to get involved, she decided to ask local businesses to help her continue to help raise money by hosting a lemonade stand at their locations.
Visit Backyard Birds on Saturday, July 13, 2013, 11:00 am to 3:00 pm and get a FREE cup of lemonade from Olivia’s Lemonade Stand when you make a donation to support Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation.
Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF) emerged from the front yard lemonade stand of cancer patient Alexandra “Alex” Scott (1996-2004). In 2000, 4-year-old Alex announced that she wanted to hold a lemonade stand to raise money to help find a cure for all children with cancer. Since Alex held that first stand, the Foundation bearing her name has evolved into a national fundraising movement, complete with thousands of supporters across the country carrying on her legacy of hope. To date, Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation, a registered 501(c)3 charity, has raised more than $60 million toward fulfilling Alex’s dream of finding a cure, funding over 300 research projects nationally.
