This week I’m partnering with friends to support this wonderful cause, Alex’s Lemonade Stand. If you’re in San Diego, it’s here:
Saturday July 26: 10:00-6:00 pm
3366 Adams Avenue, 92116 at the Masonic Parking Lot
FM 94.9 Live Broadcast from 10a-6p
Bands, lemonade, silent auction, kids’ activities, and more!
This lemonade stand is the biggest fundraiser in California and one of the top ten Alex’s Lemonade Stands in the country. Since its inception, Alex’s Lemonade Stand has raised over $80 million for childhood cancer, and has funded more than 450 research projects at 94 institutions. They also help families struggling with childhood cancer through a Travel Fund and an annual Educational Symposium. Long-time readers might remember that we lost our nephew to childhood cancer two years ago, so it’s a cause that’s dear to my heart.
If you can’t attend, click here to donate. Your donation of $50 funds one hour of research. Let’s help the Miller Tribe reach their goal of $15,000 this year, getting them to $100,000 for the nine years they’ve been running.
I’m helping out by coordinating the San Diego Food Bloggers Lemonade Online Challenge, sponsored by Melissa’s Produce
More than a dozen San Diego Food Bloggers will be cooking with lemons in support of Alex’s Lemonade Stand. Check out their lemony recipes online between July 21-28, and make a donation to the Stand through links on their blogs. You’ll find all of their recipes at the bottom of this post once they go live:
