Never pass a children's lemonade stand without stopping. If you feel the same, check out the corner of Chamblee-Dunwoody Road and Chateau Drive Today 230 to 530 pm

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.

One of our city's Girl Scout Troops is finishing up their Bronze Award by hosting a fundraiser this Saturday. They will be running a lemonade stand at the corner of Chamblee-Dunwoody Road and Chateau Drive (the entrance to Chateau Woods) to raise money for Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation for Childhood Cancer.

The girls were inspired to make Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation the focus for their Bronze Award by former troop member Molly Kate Paris' cousin Mary Elizabeth Paris and her courageous battle against Acute Myeloid Leukemia, a diagnosis she received and from which she eventually passed away. September 2 marks the first anniversary of Mary Elizabeth's death, and the girls wanted to honor her brave struggle and donate funds to research efforts against blood cancers in children.

The lemonade stand will run from 2:30pm-5:30pm THIS SATURDAY, August 27. The girls will be selling lemonade, cookies, scarves, and other items to raise money to donate to the Foundation. You can learn more about the work that Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation for Childhood Cancer does by visiting the website below. Thank you in advance for supporting the girls, their Bronze Award quest, and most importantly, their fundraising for childhood cancer research.

Thank you for helping to advertise, John, and for coming out to support the Troop. They raised a little over $400 during the 3-hour lemonade stand. We so appreciate our Dunwoody community!
