Pennington NJ Office to Host Alex’s Lemonade Stand Again
PENNINGTON, N.J., July 6, 2009 – For the second year in a row, the Pennington NJ office of Gloria Nilson GMAC Real Estate will be taking part in Alex’s Lemonade Stand, to help raise awareness and funds for pediatric cancer research in the hopes of finding new cures and treatments for this important cause. This year’s event will take place on July 18th at the Pennington office of Gloria Nilson GMAC, located at 800 Denow Road in Pennington.
Alex’s Lemonade Stand began in 2000, when a 4-year old cancer patient named Alexandra “Alex” Scott decided to raise money to help her doctors find a cure for kids with cancer. Over the next 4 years, Alex helped raise over $1 million before succumbing to her illness in August, 2004. Through the strength and determination of Alex’s parents and the Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation, along with the support of thousands of children, adults and businesses like Gloria Nilson GMAC Real Estate, Alex’s vision and mission live on. As of June 2007, the Foundation has raised over $18 million for childhood cancer research.
“This is truly an important cause, and one that affects so very many children and their families. We feel honored to be able to host this event again this year, and are doing everything we can to make it another successful day” says Susan Van Selous, branch manager for the Pennington office of Gloria Nilson GMAC Real Estate. “We invite all our community members, families and children to stop by and aide our efforts,” Van Selous continued.
To honor this cause, thousands of stand hosts across the country will be selling cups of lemonade, with proceeds going to the Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation to help fight childhood cancer “one cup at a time.”
“Our agents and staff in the Pennington office work so hard each year to put together a fun and rewarding event, and the people in our community always rise to the occasion and show their support,” says Pat Bell, president of Gloria Nilson GMAC Real Estate.
Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation has raised over $25 million for childhood cancer research. The result: Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation has given millions of dollars for childhood cancer research across the country!
