Alex's Lemonade Stand-THIS SATURDAY
Did you know September is National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month? Childhood Cancer remains the number one disease killer of children under the age of 15 in the United States. Over 12,000 children are diagnosed with cancer every year in the United States alone. Of those diagnosed, an estimated 2,500 children will not survive, that is one child in the US dying from cancer every 3.5 hours. 36 children and adolescents are diagnosed with cancer every day in the United States, that is one new diagnosis every 40 minutes.
We will have an Alex's Lemonade Stand at our store, this Saturday, September 26th from 11am to 4 pm. Everyone who donates to the lemonade stand will receive a 20% off coupon to the store. At the end of the day we will donate 10% of our proceeds to the Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation. It's a great day to do some shopping, quench your thirst and help other children all at the same time.
