Caroline Gallagher’s C&C Lemonade Factory will host its 4th Annual Lemonade Stand to support childhood cancer at Al Lang Stadium, home of the Tampa Bay Rowdies, who are partnering to host the event.
The event coincides with Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation’s 20th anniversary of its Lemonade Days nationwide event. Again 100% of all donations will go to Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital and Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation as the event beneficiaries.
Caroline was diagnosed with leukemia when she was 18 months old. Just six months later her two-year-old cousin, Julia, was also diagnosed with cancer. After over two and a half years of treatment, Caroline is in remission. Sadly, Julia lost her fight with cancer. Caroline is committed to making a difference to honor Julia’s fight and to support all childhood cancer warriors fighting this terrible disease. Lemonade Days is a national event held every June where an estimated 10,000 volunteers will host over 2,000 lemonade stands around the nation. Last year C&C’s event raised over $13,000 and this year the sisters have set of goal of $20K in 2020.
June 6, 2020 10:00 am to 2:00 pm
Al Lang Stadium, 230 1st Street SE, St. Petersburg, FL 33701

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. To date, Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation, a registered 501(c)3 charity, has raised more than $150 million toward fulfilling Alex’s dream of finding a cure, funding over 800 pediatric cancer research projects nationally.
