Blue Bell, PA (PRWEB) July 18, 2006
Children opening a lemonade stand is an age-old tradition met with smiles and adults opening their wallets to buy lemonade to help the neighborhood children buy a skateboard, roller skates or some other worthwhile amusement.
There is something uniquely special about a 4-year old girl who opens a lemonade stand to help cure cancer. Alexandra “Alex” Scott at the tender age of 4 years old started an annual lemonade stand to raise money to cure cancer as she battled the deadly disease.
Alex lost her brave fight against cancer at the age of 8, but her lemonade stand and the organization it inspired continue to raise money for cancer research and treatment. On Wednesday August 23rd Applebee’s Restaurants with the assistance of KDS Fundraising will hold a Charity Golf Event and Fundraising Auction to raise money and awareness for Alex’s Lemonade Stand.
“Being in the fundraising industry, we are blessed to be able to help many terrific organizations raise the funds they often are in desperate need of,” Jeffrey Hammond, KDS Fundraising explains. “There is something a little more special when you are working with an organization like Alex’s Lemonade Stand (http://www.alexslemonade.org) started by a brave little girl who was fighting for her own life as she thought of others,” Hammond continues.
Turning lemons into lemonade is what Alex and now her family continues to do. The event will take place on August 23rd at Turtle Creek Golf Course in Royersford, PA and will include special guests. Fees for this event are only $100 per golfer ($400 per foursome) and include: breakfast, range facilities, golf & cart, lunch, beverages, numerous skill contests & prizes, and a fundraising auction!

With many people throughout the nation and the world quick to lend a helping hand wherever they can, including supporting local lemonade stands, the expectations may be running a little higher when the lemonade stand was founded by a young girl who lost her battle with cancer, but has already changed the world.
