Caroline Grossinger is pleased to support Alex’s Lemonade Stand. Caroline and family hosted a fundraiser at their dealership to raise proceeds that went directly to the organization.
Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF) for Childhood Cancer is committed to finding a cure for all children with cancer. The foundation operates on the principle introduced by their founder Alexandra “Alex” Scott – “when life hands you lemons, make lemonade.”
Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation first began in 2000, when a then-4-year-old cancer patient named Alex voiced a simple wish – she wanted to hold a lemonade stand to raise money to help “her doctors” find a cure for all kids with cancer. The idea was put into action when Alex held her very first lemonade stand on her family’s front lawn in July of that same year. For the next four years, despite her deteriorating health, Alex held an annual lemonade stand to raise money for childhood cancer research.
Since Alex held her first front yard lemonade stand, the foundation bearing her name, Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation, has raised over $25 million, with nearly half of the funds originating from front yard lemonade stands like Alex’s. The money raised has been utilized to fund over 100 cutting-edge research projects, create a travel program to assist families who need to travel for treatment, and develop resources to help everyone touched by childhood cancer.
