Culver City MOMS Club hosts Alex's Lemonade Stand
Alexandra "Alex" Scott .Before she passed away at the age of 8, knowing that, with the help of others, she had raised more than $1 million to help find a cure for the disease that took her life.
In an effort to join the battle against childhood cancer, the MOMS Club of Culver City West will host an Alex's Lemonade Stand on Saturday, April 26 from 11 am to2 pm at 5389 Dobson Way (the corner of Dobson Way and Jefferson Blvd).
The MOMS Club of Culver City West chose Alex's Lemonade Stand to be the beneficiary of their annual service project because they felt it was a worthy cause to contribute to. Service Project Coordinator Amy Kaplan is personally acquainted with a family whose son was diagnosed with lymphoma at the age of three. Now, age seven, this boy has endured four years of treatment and is thriving.
"After seeing what this family went through, and talking to fellow MOMS Club members about it, we all wanted to do something to help," said Amy.
The MOMS Club of Culver City West is a local chapter of MOMS Club International. It is a non-profit group of about 30 at-home moms who live in Culver City, west of Overland Blvd.
In addition to play groups, meet ups and neighborhood activities, members also participate in an annual service project. At their Alex's Lemonade Stand, cups of lemonade will be available for a suggested donation of $1, as well as fresh baked goods made by club members.
