Never pass a children's lemonade stand without stopping. If you feel the same, check out Dunwoody Club Forest on Sat.

My kids love my never pass a children's lemonade stand rule because they know it's guaranteed liquid refreshment and if their lucky it also provides a cookie, but on top of everything it is also a life lesson for both my kids as well as the proprietor of the lemonade stand.

Four Vanderlyn Elementary School families will spend the afternoon on Saturday, June 5, 2010, selling lemonade as they host an Alex's Lemonade Stand to fight childhood cancer.

Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF) emerged from the front yard lemonade stand of cancer patient, Alexandra "Alex" Scott (1996-2004). At the age of 4, Alex announced that she wanted to hold a lemonade stand to raise money to help find a cure for all children with cancer. 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. To date, Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation, a registered 501(c)3 charity, has raised more than $30 million towards fulfilling Alex's dream of finding a cure, funding over 80 research projects nationally.

Please help us raise funds by visiting the lemonade stand on Saturday, June 5, 2010, from 11:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m. at 5218 Forest Springs Drive (Dunwoody Club Forest Subdivision). They will be selling fresh squeezed lemonade and baked goods. Donations in any amount are welcome.

 Saturday from 11 to 3
