Lightfoot Raises over $30,000 for Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation for Childhood Cancer
June 14, 2019
The attorneys and staff at Lightfoot, Franklin & White LLC have raised over $30,000 in support of pediatric cancer research. For the third year in a row, attorney Terry McCarthy and other team members hosted a lemonade stand in the heart of downtown Birmingham to raise money for Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation for Childhood Cancer.
On June 13, the Lightfoot team served lemonade (donated by Milo’s Tea) as part of Alex’s Lemonade Days, an annual event when thousands of supporters around the country raise money for childhood cancer research.
Since 2017, the “Lightfoot Lemons” team has raised more than $70,000 for the nonprofit organization. The firm was named a “top fundraiser” by Alex’s Lemonade Stand in 2017 and 2018.
About Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation
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 $140 million toward fulfilling Alex’s dream of finding a cure, funding over 690 pediatric cancer research projects nationally.
