Saturday - Alex's Lemonade Stand hosted by Dunwoody children on Mt. Vernon Way.

Saturday 11 - 3 pm
5141 Mt. Vernon Way

Summer time rule - don't drive past a children's neighborhood lemonade stand without stopping.  Especially when it is a group of neighborhood children raising funds for charity.

Refreshing lemonade will be served from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at 5141 Mt. Vernon Way. These Dunwoody children have raised more than $1,500 for the foundation in the first three years’ events and look forward to community support for this year’s event on Saturday.

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.
