Endicott Kindergartners to Hold Lemonade Stand to Benefit Alex’s Lemonade Stand
The kids at the Transitional Kindergarten classes at All Saints Catholic School in Endicott are studying the letter L and what better way to learn about that letter than with a lemonade stand to benefit Alex's Lemonade Stand?
Alex's Lemonade Stand is a pediatric cancer charity founded by Alexandra "Alex" Scott. Alex was diagnosed with neuroblastoma, a pediatric cancer, two days before her first birthday. In July 2000, in spite of her own failing health, she decided to open a lemonade stand, aided by her older brother, to raise money to help children with cancer. They held an annual "Alex's Lemonade Stand for Childhood Cancer" on the family's front lawn. Her first lemonade stand raised over $2,000 and turned into an annual tradition. Alex died at the age of eight on August 1, 2004.
The students at the Transitional Kindergarten classes at All Saints Catholic School in Endicott will work together to plan, design, market, decorate, make items for sale, and staff the lemonade stand.
Other treats that begin with the letter L will also be for sale. Items range in price from 25 cents to $1.00.
The All Saints Transitional Kindergarten lemonade stand will be open on Friday January 17th from 9:30am-11:45am at the school at 1112 Broad Street in Endicott.
All proceeds from the sales will be donated to Alex's Lemonade Stand.
