Teaming Up With Alex’s Lemonade Stand to End Childhood Cancer

Posted by ImageFIRST on Jul 12, 2017 8:00:00 AM

Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation partners with organizations and companies all across the nation to raise funds towards the elimination of childhood cancer, once and for all. From June 5th until June 9th, the associates at ImageFIRST LA hosted their own lemonade stand at their plant site in Gardena for Alex’s Lemonade Days.
Alex’s Lemonade Days, which takes place once a year during the month of June, is an event that encourages companies and industries all across the country to host their own lemonade stands.

Throughout the week, employees sold and bought lemonade to spread the positive message of Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation and to raise awareness and funds for the organization. This private lemonade stand was exclusive to ImageFIRST LA employees. In addition to the money the employees raised and donated, ImageFIRST donated another $2,000 to Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation.

Each year during Alex’s Lemonade Days, about 10,000 volunteers step up and collectively create over 2,000 new stands. These stands represent the unity that organizations can have when they work together to contribute to a great cause.

Why ImageFIRST Teamed Up

ImageFIRST associate Sandra Barrios has a special connection to Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation. Her nephew, Lorenzo Michele, was born with Down Syndrome and was diagnosed with leukemia at age 2. Because of her personal experience, she was inspired to create and host a stand.
