The Lake placid yOuth Vs. cancEr (LOVE) team raised more than $1,000 for the American Cancer Society at the Relay for Life event held last month at the oval
Our Alex's lemonade stand (alexlemonade.org) was a huge success!
A big thank you to my teammates for the day: Maggie O'Brien, Sandra Harper and Hunter Spotts for helping me sell lemonade and raffle tickets in hurricane-force winds.
We couldn't have made such a great profit if we didn't have the outstanding support from Villa Vespa (for donating the raffle basket) and from our hometown Hannaford's (for donating the lemonade).
Thanks also to all of my friends, family and supporters for your generous monetary gifts. It's proof that we can make a difference in the fight against cancer.
Thank you again.
