I remember learning about Alex’s Lemonade Stand several years ago when a good friend of ours was diagnosed with DIPG at the age of 5. Childhood cancer takes an incredible bit of courage and strength for these young patients and their families. I loved the idea behind Alex’s Lemonade Stand.
Applebee’s + Alex’s Lemonade Stand
Recently, I learned that Applebee’s® Neighborhood Grill + Bar restaurants has made it easy for their guests to donate to the cause. This year marks Applebee’s 14th with Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation. Since the Foundation started in 2005, Applebee’s restaurants have partnered with ALSF to raise more than $8.2 million to help keep Alex Scott’s mission alive of finding cures for all childhood cancers. This year’s goal is to raise more than $1 million dollars for pediatric cancer research and family support programs.
Now through August 12th, you can stop by one of more than 1,050 participating Applebee’s locations nationwide to help join the fight against childhood cancer. No participating location near you? You can still donate! Visit applebees.com/alexslemonade to donate directly online.
Otherwise, stop by your local Applebee’s and enjoy a refreshing lemonade. In fact, you can support in raising funds for the Foundation in a variety of ways, including:
- Purchasing lemon-shaped pin-up cards in $1 and $5 increments. Guests who donate $5 will receive a thank you card entitling them to a free lemonade or free kid’s meal during their next visit, or $5 off $25 at Applebee’s restaurants or online orders, from August 12, 2018 through September 30, 2018.
- Purchasing a Lemonade Quencher made with real fruit or other frozen or flavored Lemonade refreshment to have a portion of the proceeds donated.
- Participating in local events such as lemonade stands, golf tournaments, donation nights and more.
