Author: teddygirl | Friday September 22, 2006

Benefit is this weekend

The 2nd Lemonade Bears Benefit is September 22-24, 2006. Teddy bear artists and manufacturers from around the world donated pieces to be auctioned on Bid 4 Bears. All proceeds go to Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation.

In July, 2000, a four year old cancer patient named Alexandra "Alex" Scott announced a seemingly simple idea -she was holding a lemonade stand to raise money to help "her doctors" find a cure for kids with cancer. The idea was put into action by Alex and her older brother, Patrick, when they set up the first "Alex's Lemonade Stand for pediatric cancer" on their front lawn.

From this simple idea, Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation evolved into a nationwide fundraising movement for childhood cancer.

Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation is committed to:
- Raising money and awareness for pediatric cancer causes, primarily research into new cures and treatments.
- Encouraging and educating others, especially children, to raise money for Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation for childhood cancer.
