Hibu Helps: Alex’s Lemonade Stand 2017
Yesterday (Wed., Aug. 16th), employees at our King of Prussia office held a fun fundraiser (a “fun-draiser”?) for Alex’s Lemonade Stand.
For those who aren’t familiar with it, Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF) is a national
childhood cancer foundation dedicated to raising funds for research into new treatments and cures for all children battling cancer. ALSF founder, Alexandra “Alex” Scott, held her first front yard lemonade stand when she was just 4 years old. Although Alex lost her battle against cancer, the foundation carries on her mission: “to find cures for all children battling cancer.”
For a few hours in the afternoon, our back patio was filled with music, games, soft pretzels… and, of course, lemonade. Jessica Duffy, one of many volunteers on our Employee Activities Committee, told me that “we’ve been doing this for several years. This year, we raised over $750 – and over the past three years, we’ve raised about $3,000.”
Thanks to everyone who participated in this year’s event. As the Foundation wrote in the “Thank You” letter they sent after last year’s event…
“Thank you for your support in the fight against childhood cancer… one cup at a time.”
