Coastside Mothers’ Club to host local Alex’s Lemonade Stand


The Coastside Mothers Club (CMC) will host an Alex’s Lemonade Stand as part of the National Lemonade Days weekend on Saturday, June 13, 2009 from 9am-1pm, at the Saturday Farmer’s Market at Shoreline Station, at the intersection of Highway 1 and Kelly Ave. 

Lemonade Days is a three day national event that grew out of pediatric cancer patient Alexandra "Alex" Scott’s front yard lemonade stand, and is held every year over the same June weekend. During Lemonade Days, dedicated volunteers host thousands of Alex’s Lemonade Stands across the country, raising over $1 million for childhood cancer research in one weekend.

9am – 1 pm

Volunteer members of the CMC will read from the inspirational book "Alex and the Amazing Lemonade Stand" at the Farmer’s Market at the beginning of each hour from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm.  Anyone who donates $5 or more will receive a fresh lemonade kit to take home and make real lemonade the old fashioned way!  Each donation also enters a child’s name in a raffle for a special lemonade gift basket with a copy of the book Alex and the Amazing Lemonade Stand and Alex’s Greatest Hits CD. 

June 12th - 14th 2009 will mark the 6th Annual Lemonade Days with an estimated 10,000 volunteers at over 2,000 Alex’s Lemonade Stands around the nation. To date, Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation, a registered 501(c)3 charity, has raised more than $25 million towards fulfilling Alex’s dream of finding a cure for all childhood cancer, funding over 100 research projects nationally.

The Coastside Mothers’ Club was founded in 1992 by a community of families with young children.  Celebrating our 17 year anniversary, we have grown to approximately 300 members who live on the coast between Montara and Pescadero.  Our club offers Coastside mothers, fathers and caregivers support, education and a chance for socialization, friendship and fun.  We also serve as an advocate for mothers, children and families within the Coastside community at large.
