Have you heard of Alex's Lemonade Stand? It's a childhood cancer fundraising organization that started with a little girl named Alex who wanted to do something to raise money for cancer research. Some of my dear friends from high school have put a lot of thought and effort into an Alex's Lemonade Stand in Steven's honor. It will take place at the Midvale Harvest Days in Midvale City Park this Friday evening and Saturday. Here is the link to the webpage set up for the event. You can donate there, or text "LEMONADE E75051" to 85944 for a $10 donation.
We had a great time tonight painting posters and setting up the stand for a trial run. My kids are so excited to march in the parade on Saturday--they get to throw lemonade taffy and decorate a wagon. If you want to come along, let me know--the more the merrier. Steven is pretty bummed that he is going to be in the hosptial that day--too bad!
I really can't believe the amount of work my friends have put into this stand. I'll post some pictures after it's over--it is amazing! Putting this together has been a big deal, and I feel so loved that they would sacrifice their time and energy for the childhood cancer cause that our lives relvolves so tightly around. Thanks guys, and bring on the lemonade!
