One Cup At A Time - each year thousands of volunteers across the country host lemonade stands in an effort to raise $1 million toward finding cures for all kids with cancer. The idea, started by 4-year-old Alex Scott, has raised millions of dollars and impacted the childhood cancer world. Want to help? Join them at Alex’s Lemonade Days during June 9-11, at Firebirds Wood Fired Grill to donate.
Alex Scott issued her Lemonade Stand Challenge, encouraging people everywhere to hold lemonade stands during one weekend in June to help fight childhood cancer – “One Cup At A Time.” Firebirds is honored to be a part of Alex’s vision this year by participating in National Lemonade Days.
Each Firebirds location will host a Lemonade Stand from June 9 - 11.
· Firebirds' MISSION is to create awareness for Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation and their efforts to find a cure for childhood cancer.
· Firebirds' GOAL is to raise $100,000 with 100% of the proceeds going directly to ALSF.
· Firebirds has raised nearly $800,000 with our ongoing Alex’s Lemonade Stand initiative where $1.25 is donated for every fresh squeezed glass of lemonade sold.

ALSF emerged from the front yard lemonade stand of cancer patient Alexandra “Alex” Scott (1996 - 2004). In 2000, 4-year-old Alex announced that she wanted to hold a lemonade stand to help find a cure for all children with cancer. Since Alex’s first stand, ALSF has evolved into a national fundraising movement, complete with thousands of supporters across the country. To date, ALSF, a registered 501(c)3 charity, has raised more than $140 million, funding over 690 pediatric cancer research projects. For more information on ALSF visit AlexsLemonade.org.
