9th Annual National Lemonade Days for Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation for Childhood Cancer (June 8, 9 & 10)

Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF) emerged from the front yard lemonade stand of cancer patient Alex Scott (1996-2004). In 2000, 4-year-old 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's first stand, the Foundation has evolved into a national fundraising movement, complete with supporters nationwide carrying on her legacy. To date, ALSF, a registered 501(c)3 charity, has raised more than $50 million toward finding a cure, funding over 200 pediatric cancer research projects nationally.

WHEN: June 8, 9, and 10, 2012

LEGO® Friends and Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation Call on Philadelphia Builders to Construct the World’s Largest LEGO Lemonade Stand at the National Constitution Center to Kick Off National Lemonade Days 2012
LEGO® Friends and Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF) host a 2-day collaborative build of the world’s largest lemonade stand made entirely of LEGO® bricks with the goal of making the 2012 National Lemonade Days (June 8-10) the biggest in its history. 2012 will mark the 9th Annual National Lemonade Days. The Lemonade Stand will be completed in time to serve lemonade on Saturday. Additional building activities will take place during the weekend. The event is free of charge, but donations are encouraged.

In connection with the event, the National Constitution Center will host a variety of interactive programs and activities to honor Alex Scott and her legacy. Children and their families will have the opportunity to make lemon-themed arts and crafts, including bracelets and key chains, which they can proudly display to raise awareness for childhood cancer research.  Visitors also can take a special guided journey through the Center’s main exhibition The Story of We the People and learn about child heroes, who, like Alex, have made a difference throughout our history.  The Center’s activities are free with museum admission.  Children eight and under are FREE with a donation to Alex’s Lemonade Stand!

The event will be held on the Front Lawn of the National Constitution Center on Thursday, June 7 and Friday, June 8 from 10am to 5pm and on Saturday, June 9 from 12pm to 4pm. Visit for more details.
