The girls, who are 11, 8 and 6, respectively, will sell lemonade from 8 a.m.-2 p.m. at their home, 680 Rocky Meadow Drive, Greenwood, with proceeds benefiting Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation.
The oldest sisters first heard about childhood cancer when their grandmother told them about a relative who had died of the disease; that bit of information set them on their lemonade journey, which is in its seventh year.
Since then they continue to find more connections to the ailment. Although the sale started with just Brooklyn and Daisy, they are proud to have their younger sister, family and friends help them fight the disease, one cup at a time.
They will also sell their old toys and clothes in hopes of raising $800.
The foundation emerged from the lemonade stand of cancer patient Alexandra “Alex” Scott (1996-2004), who wanted to raise money to help find a cure for all children with cancer. The charity has evolved into a national fundraising movement, netting more than $140 million since its inception.
