In an effort to join the battle against childhood cancer, West Chester University students will host an Alex’s Lemonade Stand fundraiser, complete with a Powder Puff Tournament, on Sunday, April 18th, 2010 from 3-7 PM at the Farrell Football Stadium on West Chester University’s South Campus. Members of the University were inspired to get involved with Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation after Liz and Jay Scott, Alex’s parents, came to speak at the school last year. WCU decided to hold a Charity Tournament. This will be the second annual event, which is slated to include a 50/50 raffle, a bake sale, a pretzel sale, and grilled food for sale as well as the lemonade stand. All proceeds will benefit Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation. There will also be a DJ and entertainment between games.Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF) emerged from the front yard lemonade stand of cancer patient Alexandra “Alex” Scott (1996-2004). 2010 marks 10 years since 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 volunteers 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 $30 million towards fulfilling Alex’s dream of finding a cure, funding over 125 research projects nationally.
