Burlington’s Lemonade Stand Raises Funds For Childhood Cancer

Jolene Cannady, a registered nurse, hosted an Alex’s Lemonade Stand, located outside the Old Navy store in Burlington during September, the National Childhood Cancer Awareness month.
The lemonade stand represents the Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation that has been named after Alexandra Scott (1996 - 2004), who wanted to raise money for helping find a cure for children with cancer, by holding a lemonade stand.
An outstanding success, the lemonade stand raised around $740, today, which total Old Navy has promised to match.
In a bid to fulfil Alex’s dream of finding a cure for cancer, Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation has raised over $45 million and has funded around 200 research projects on a national level.
The Sweet Tooth is also partnering Little Monkey Bizness to raise funds for Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF), their goal being to raise as much as $30,000 for ALSF.
The Sweet Tooth plans to sell discounted cupcakes, instead of lemonade at its lemonade stands with a twist, featuring its four Lemonade flavoured cupcakes available by the dozen at a discounted price, which include Pucker Up, Strawberry Lemonade, Raspberry Lemonade and Cherry Lemonade.
The Sweet Tooth will donate $5 from each sale to ALSF.
The Sweet Tooth’s lemonade themed cupcakes are delicious and refreshing, just like a lemonade drink.  For more information or to place an order, call The Sweet Tooth on 816-600-8244, tst@sweettoothkc.com.
