We’re Proud To Support: The Rose Group 16th Annual Charity Golf Classic To Benefit Alex’s Lemonade Stand

The Rose Group, their guests & partners have raised over $4.8 million since 2005 for this cause. In 2000, a 4 year old cancer patient named Alexandra “Alex” Scott announced a seemingly simple idea-she was holding a lemonade stand to raise money to help her doctors find a cure for kids with cancer. The idea was put into action by Alex and her older brother, Patrick, when they set up the first Alex’s Lemonade Stand for Childhood Cancer on their front lawn in July of 2000. For the next four years, despite her deteriorating health, Alex held an annual lemonade stand to raise money for childhood cancer research. Following her inspirational example, thousands of lemonade stands and other fundraising events have been held across the country by children, schools, businesses and organizations to benefit Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation for Childhood Cancer. On August 1, 2004, Alex died peacefully at the age of 8 – she had raised over $1 million for childhood cancer research in her short lifetime. Alex’s family and supporters are committed to continuing her inspiring legacy through Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation, a registered 501c3 charity. As of December 2022, this foundation has raised over $250 million for childhood cancer research funding over 1,000 cutting edge research projects nationally at nearly 150 institutions.

The 2022 fundraising season raised over $64k in the annual golf outing at Talamore Country Club in June of 2021 and over $200,000 from restaurant donations and $.50 contribution from every flavored lemonade sold last year. Applebee’s in total for the 2021 campaign raised over $1.1 million again in the fight against childhood cancer and we are hoping to raise that again this year with Applebee’s participating nationally in the 2022 summer promotion.
