BENEFITING: Sanfilippo Research Foundation, Inc.
ORGANIZER: Sanfilippo Research Foundation, Inc.
At the age of 6, I decided to host a lemonade stand and donate the money to research for a cure for my sister who has Sanfilippo Syndrome, a terminal genetic disease. I delivered flyers around the neighborhood, made posters and served lemonade and baked goods. My lemonade is different; it is purple to represent the courage of children living with Sanfilippo Syndrome. The first Purple Lemonade stand was a big success and it has grown bigger each year!
I know that people don’t give money because they want a glass of purple lemonade. They just want to give to support and help my wish come true…to find a cure for my sister and all the other kids with Sanfilippo Syndrome. So please don’t pass by our lemonade stand. I can only imagine what would happen if everyone that sees this buys some lemonade!
