When life hands you lemons, do you make lemonade?
That is exactly what 4 year old Alex did in 2000. As a cancer patient, Alexandra “Alex” Scott set up a lemonade stand to raise money to help find a cure for children with cancer. Since her first lemonade stand, the Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation has become a national movement, raising more than $80 million for finding a cure.
Sadly, a cure wasn’t found for Alex when she passed away in 2004. Her family continues their efforts to find better treatment and a cure of childhood cancer with some amazing companies like Red Robin who makes it easy for everyone to help support the cause with 4 easy ways this Wednesday, August 20th on National Lemonade Day.
A Red Robin gift card and information have been provided by Red Robin to facilitate this post.
Red Robin is celebrating National Lemonade Day and donating a portion of all proceeds of every order of delicious Freckled Lemonade this Wednesday! Who can resist this ultimate lemonade, especially when it goes to a worthy cause?!
This is an easy way to show our support for the children and families that are struck by childhood cancer. What a great way to spend time this Wednesday with friends and family for lunch or dinner while supporting such a worthy cause at the same time.
Red Robin supports Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation on more than just National Lemonade Day. During grand opening week at new Red Robin locations, all proceeds form their Freckled Lemonades are donated to the foundation!
I love supporting companies that give back to the community, especially when it touches the lives of children in need like those that will benefit from the research dollars available through this foundation.
