Alex’s Lemonade Stand Partnership
The Malvern School has supported the Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF) through our Alex’s Lemonade Partnership since 2008. We do so both as a sponsor on the annual CBS 3 Phone Bank which is held each June, as well as through our annual Malvern School Lemonade Day each summer. These events are aimed at raising awareness and funds for research in the fight against pediatric cancer.
The Malvern School has independently raised more than $539,232 in private donations during the annual Malvern School Alex’s Lemonade Day. In 2012, The Malvern School was recognized by ALSF as one of the top 100 individual fundraisers for the foundation, out of more than 6,000 lemonade stands.
About The Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation:
The Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation emerged from the front yard lemonade stand of cancer patient Alexandra “Alex” Scott. In 2000, 4-year-old Alex announced she wanted to hold a lemonade stand to raise money to help find a cure for all children with cancer. Alex died in 2004 but the little girl left a big legacy proving how one idea can make a huge difference. 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, the Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation has raised more than $127 million towards fulfilling Alex’s dream of finding a cure, funding over 650 research projects nationally.
