Westover Companies to host lemonade stands at 57 apartment communities in Pennsylvania, Delaware, New Jersey, and Maryland on June 8
KING OF PRUSSIA (June 6, 2018) On Friday, June 8, 2018, The Westover Companies will team up with Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation to stake a stand against childhood cancers. A total of 57 of Westover’s residential properties and corporate headquarters will participate by opening lemonade stands to raise funds for the childhood cancer foundation. Through this event, donors will help Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation earn match dollars from the Westover Companies, furthering the impact in the fight against childhood cancers.
Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation was established in 2005 to continue the mission of four-year-old Alex, who while fighting her own battle against cancer, set up a lemonade stand to help raise money for “doctors to find a cure” for all childhood cancers.
The Westover Companies is honored to partner with Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation and support their mission to raise funds for research into new treatments and cures for all children battling cancer, said Gunti Weissenberger, President of The Westover Companies. We’re proud to support Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation and the dream of its founder, Alex Scott, to end childhood cancer. We welcome residents and our local communities to join us on June 8 for a day of fun and fundraising.
Participating Westover Companies lemonade stands are located in Pennsylvania, Delaware, New Jersey, and Maryland. To find one of the 57 participating Westover Companies apartment communities, please visit:

About Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation
Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF) emerged from the front yard lemonade stand of cancer patient Alexandra Alex Scott (1996-2004). In 2000, 4-year-old Alex announced that she wanted to hold a lemonade stand to raise money to help find a cure for all children with cancer. Since Alex held that first stand, the Foundation bearing her name has evolved into a national fundraising movement, complete with thousands of supporters across the country carrying on her legacy of hope. To date, Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation, a registered 501(c)3 charity, has raised more than $150 million toward fulfilling Alex’s dream of finding a cure, funding over 800 pediatric cancer research projects nationally. In addition, ALSF provides support to families affected by childhood cancer through programs such as Travel For Care and SuperSibs.
