Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF) Fundraiser for Cancer Research

Danielle Benoit, Ph.D. and her Therapeutic Biomaterials Lab, will once again give back by hosting their 5th annual Alex's Lemonade Stand fundraiser for ALSF at the Rochester Public Market on Saturday June 7th, from 10am-1pm.Last year's fundraiser for cancer was a rousing success as the lab raised over $1700, and Dr. Benoit hopes to raise even more this year. The lab continues to urge friends, family, and colleagues to contribute in person and online to help support ALSF.

Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF) emerged from the front yard lemonade stand of cancer patient Alexandra AlexScott (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. If you would like to contribute to this effort, please visit the Benoit Lab's ALSF Lemonade Stand.
