Montecito Family Fights Kids’ Cancer with Lemonade Stand
The Coppola family decided to get involved because their young daughter, Cesca, wanted to host a lemonade stand and also mentioned donating money to children that need help.
Kids helping kids has been a passion of the Coppola family for quite some time, and they feel that hosting a lemonade stand is a fun way to do just that. Along with lemonade, the stand will also include pink lemonade, rice krispy treats, candy and even treats/water for four legged friends!
Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF) emerged from the front yard lemonade stand of cancer patient Alexandra “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 held that first stand, the Foundation bearing her name has evolved into a national fundraising movement, complete with thousands of supporters across the country carrying on her legacy of hope. To date, Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation, a registered 501(c)3 charity, has raised more than $60 million toward fulfilling Alex’s dream of finding a cure, funding over 275 research projects nationally.
