PHILADELPHIA (CBS) —  CBS3 and The CW Philly’s 11th annual Alex Scott: Stand for Hope Telethon, a 14-hour on-air benefit for the Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation, raised more than $6.5 million ($6,545,474) for pediatric cancer research today, a record for the fundraiser which began in 2007. Over its 11 years on-air, the event has raised more than $24 million for the cause.

Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation emerged from the front yard lemonade stand of cancer patient Alexandra “Alex” Scott.  In 2000, 4-year-old Alex announced 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. Alex died in 2004 but the little girl left a big legacy proving how one idea can make a huge difference.
