PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — “Lemonade Days” take place this weekend, all over Philadelphia and beyond.
Alex Scott was the Wynnewood, Pa. girl who raised awareness for pediatric cancer through her lemonade stand. She passed away nine years ago, but her legacy continues with “Lemonade Days,” June 7th-9th, to raise money for pediatric cancer research.
Jay Scott, Alex’s father (top photo), talks about his daughter’s inspiring story and the amazing impact she has had on research into the disease that took her life:
“There’s gonna be lemonade stands all over the place — all around Philly, all around the state, all around the country, all around the world, but Philly is sort of the hub of Alex’s Lemonade Stands.”
Scott recommends stopping at several stands this weekend.
“People use whatever kind of lemonade they want; so some use bottled, some use powder, some do fresh-squeezed. We leave it up to the stand host,” he tells What’s Cooking.
