Description-The Lewis family will host their 2nd Annual Alex’s Lemonade Stand as part of the National Lemonade Days weekend on beginning Friday, June 12th, 13th, 14th, 2009 from 3pm-6pm, 1900 Orthodox Street, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania (Frankford Section of the City of Philadelphia). The Lewis family decided to get more involved with the Alex Lemonade Stand after supporting their school’s effort of the Pennsylvania Virtual Charter School in Norristown, PA. The school partnered last year with their curriculum provider K12 and it was an absolute successful collaboration between the two organizations. The Lewis family has never had to face childhood cancer personally however they identify with the severity of family members who fought the battle of cancer. The Lewis’ concluded that they would host a lemonade stand every year to contribute to the battle against childhood cancer. Lemonade Days is a three day national event that grew out of Alexandra “Alex” Scott’s front yard lemonade stand, and is held every year over the same June weekend. During Lemonade Days, dedicated volunteers host thousands of Alex’s Lemonade Stands across the country, raising over $1 million for childhood cancer research in one weekend. June 2009 will mark the 6th Annual Lemonade Days with an estimated 10,000 volunteers at over 2,000 Alex’s Lemonade Stands around the nation. Lemonade Days 2009 is set for June 12th, 13th and 14th. To date, Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation, a registered 501(c)3 charity, has raised more than $25 million towards fulfilling Alex’s dream of finding a cure for all childhood cancer, funding over 100 research projects nationally.
