How will we cure childhood cancer? One Cup at a Time!
In 2016, THMED partnered with Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation to make a difference for childhood cancer. Alex’s Lemonade Days is an annual event, hosted the second weekend of June, in which thousands of supporters nationwide host lemonade stands to help fight childhood cancer. This event has raised more than $15 Million for pediatric cancer. THMED was honored to be a part of the national effort to help Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation host three successful events during the weekend of June 10 – 12.
Friday, June 10th: Raising Cane’s, located at 7955 N MacArthur Blvd, Irving, TX 75063, joined the team and contributed 15% of sales to the THMED ALSF Fundraiser for any customer who mentioned Lemonade Days when ordering. THMED was able to spread the news to the community and other tenants in our corporate building raising a total of $139.14. The Raising Canes family was also fundamental in hosting the events during Lemonade Days, as they donated over 10 gallons of lemonade to THMED to use for lemonade stands.
Friday, June 10th: The lovely ladies of Kendra Scott in Preston Center, 8383 Preston Center Plaza, Dallas, TX 75225, helped by donating their time, snacks and drinks at our Kendra Gives Back event. We hosted our first official Lemonade Stand and raised $799.63 in just three hours! Thank you to the team at Kendra Scott for contributing 20% of all sales to Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation.
Saturday, June 11th: What goes better with lemonade then a juicy hamburger? THMED and Chip’s Old Fashioned Hamburger partnered together to hold a successful lemonade stand through the rain and the scorching sun raising over $764.80 We were blown away by the generosity of both the Chip’s staff and the patrons who spent the time to not only donate, but learn more about ALSF and the staggering statistics of childhood cancer.
THMED would like to give a huge Shout out and THANKS to our partners Raising Canes, Kendra Scott, and Chip’s Old Fashioned Hamburger for the kindness and generosity of each team and for allowing us to host stands and events at each of your establishments. Lemonade Days was a success because of all of YOU and the support of everyone who either donated or purchased items during our events!
We raised a total of $1,706.57 in only two days!
Imagine what we can do if we all join together to help fight childhood cancer!
Kids with cancer don’t have time to wait. The donations we raised will go to research seeking lifesaving treatments and will make a huge difference for these kids and their families. THMED is honored and proud to take part in Lemonade Days and we all look forward to hitting our $8,000 Goal for 2016!
