Lemonade stand raises money to fight childhood cancer

Posted: Updated:
HELENA -

As part of National Lemonade Days celebration, Helena hosted Alex's Lemonade stand today in front of First Impressions Salon.

Most lemonade stands are set up to help kids earn a few dollars, but this lemonade stand was set up to help kids in need. For every glass of lemonade sold, volunteers fill a jar of proceeds that go to the charity.

Alex's Lemonade Volunteer, Christina Lute said, "They raise money for childhood cancer research, and they also give money to families so that they can travel long distances to receive treatment." 

In fact, the charity helped a local Helena family finance their trip to Seattle for their son, Austin Dunlap who is fighting childhood cancer.

"When I found Alex's Lemonade Stand, I got a phone called within 24 hours from when I emailed them, and she was fantastic. Just worked right through everything for us, booked our flights, our hotel, even though we didn't have a date. I was able to call her on a Sunday and she had everything ready for us that following week," said Austin's mom Valerie Dunlap.

If you're unable to stop by the lemonade stand, you can donate ten dollars by texting the word "lemonade 1115236" to 8-5-9-4-4.

Alex's lemonade stand will return tomorrow at 10:30 a.m. to 2 p.m.
