Not a dry eye in the house on Saturday Nite January 15,2011
Liz and Jay Scott put on another fantastic event for Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF) which was the continued vision of the founder and creator, Alexandra “Alex” Scott. Reading heartfelt letters from families who benefit from funds raised by ALSF, moved every one attending the silent auction . With over 100 volunteers, and participation from major corporations this evening fundraiser does it right for a great start to the New Year and the vision "a cure for all children with cancer"
The most important message was that it all started with a lemonade stand and a vision. That little stand and little girl's vision turned into over $1,000,000. This organization continues today through her parents, friends, volunteers, community involvement and a bunch of little kids raising a lot of awareness. Alex would have been 15 on January 18, 2011.
