In their continuing efforts to raise funds and awareness for the fight against childhood cancer, the Gonzales family of Renton will host Antonio’s Grand Lemonade Stand from 11 am to 4 pm, June 2 at Cascade Elementary School in Renton during Lemonade Days. This is the family’s 12th annual lemonade stand and they have raised over $75,000 for Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF).

Antonio was diagnosed with stage IV neuroblastoma in 2004 and has been in remission since 2005. Antonio’s mom, Olivia was first introduced to ALSF in 2006 and has been hosting their lemonade stand ever since.

What started as a small lemonade stand has evolved into a huge community event. Antonio’s Grand Lemonade Stand includes carnival games, clowns, a magician, Seattle Seafair Pirates, a blood drive, a bounce house, face painting, an auction, food vendors and, of course, lemonade. This year is very special because Niagara Waters, an event vendor, is going to match all donations they raise up to $10,000.

Founded by Alex Scott (1996-2004) in 2004, Lemonade Days is a national event that grew out of Alex’s front yard lemonade stand. Held every June, an estimated 10,000 volunteers will host over 2,000 lemonade stands around the nation making a difference for children with cancer.
