Selling Lemonade for a Good Cause

WestportNow.com Image
Hallie Spear, 9, and her friend Maisie Prince, 8, both students at Westport’s Long Lots Elementary School, were selling lemonade today on the corner of Long Lots Road and Hyde Lane. The two young friends were working to raise money for Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation, a pediatric charity started by a little girl named Alexandra (Alex) Scott who at the age of 4 while suffering from a form of cancer called Neuroblastoma decided she wanted a lemonade stand in order to raise money to give to doctors for cancer research. Sadly, Alex died at the age of 8 in 2004. But her family continued her fundraising efforts by establishing the Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation. Maisie’s mother, Emily Prince, said the girls came up with this idea and then put together their colorful and creative lemonade stand all on their own. As of mid-afternoon, the girls had raised about $50 for the foundation. (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Lynn U. Miller for WestportNow.com
