I am so excited to be going to the Lemon Mixer this January and sharing the scoop on the big event + details on Alex’s Lemonade Stand! This event helps so many children and their families through Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation, which started years ago at a front-yard lemonade stand.
Before she turned one, Alex Scott was diagnosed with neuroblastoma. The treatments seemed to be working, but by the time she turned two, she received news that her tumors had started growing again.
When Alex turned four years old, after getting a stem cell transplant, she decided to have a lemonade stand. She raised $2,000 and gave it all back to the hospital that had helped her throughout her treatments. She passed away when she was only eight years old after raising her goal of $1 million for childhood cancer research.
The Lemon Mixer
Kansas City has its own special event to support Alex’s Lemonade Stand as they continue to carry on Alex’s dream of curing childhood cancer. On January 10th, the mixer will be in its 5th year, and I can’t wait to share all about it! They will have signature drinks and delicious appetizers as well as special guest Alex Gordon joining us!
Sponsor Details + How You Can Help
Sponsors of the event include The Auto Dealers Association of Greater Kansas City, Tito’s Handmade Vodka and more! It is so simple to get involved with the Lemon Mixer through sponsorships starting at $2,500 and going all the way up to $25,000. With these donations, you get anywhere from 8 to 32 tickets to attend the event along with many other amazing perks.
And it doesn’t stop there! If you want to help support childhood cancer research but don’t want to be a sponsor, you can donate on their website or bid on one of the many items at the event. You can also join the One Cup at a Time Club, which allows people to make a monthly donation every month. Whether your donation is $10 or more, you can make a difference.
The 2020 Lemon Mixer, in its 5th year, is a great place to enjoy wonderful appetizers, Signature Tito’s cocktails, and entertainment, while raising money for childhood cancer research.
