0 Comment

In a continuing effort to raise funds and awareness for the fight against childhood cancer, S-One Holdings Corporation will host a lemonade stand on Thursday, June 20 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. in front of its corporate office in Sarasota on Main Street. The lemonade stand will benefit childhood cancer research through Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF).

Alison Hospital 1The lemonade stand is being hosted in honor of S-One’s Hero, Alison Dragash, (pictured) daughter of S-One employee Jason Dragash, who was recently diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL) and will be receiving treatment for 2.5 years.

“It was clear that as a company we wanted to join this fight to raise money to help find a cure as it hit close to home,” said S-One spokesperson, Carolyn Seketa. “We will be hosting three events in our efforts to raise money as we join the fight for our Hero and all the ALSF Heroes that need our help.” As this will be the main fundraising initiative for the year, the company will also be hosting a 3K walk to raise funds for ALSF in early fall.

Founded by Alex Scott (1996-2004) in 2004, Lemonade Days is a national event that grew out of Alex’s front yard lemonade stand. Held every June, an estimated 10,000 volunteers will host over 2,000 lemonade stands around the nation making a difference for children with cancer.

About Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation: Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF) emerged from the front yard lemonade stand of 4-year-old Alexandra “Alex” Scott, who was fighting cancer and wanted to raise money to find cures for all children with cancer. Her spirit and determination inspired others to support her cause, and when she passed away at the age of 8, she had raised $1 million. Since then, the Foundation bearing her name has evolved into a national fundraising movement. Today, ALSF is one of the leading funders of pediatric cancer research in the U.S. and Canada raising more than $175 million so far, funding nearly 1,000 research projects and providing programs to families affected by childhood cancer.
