The Shrewsbury office of Gloria Nilson & Co. Real Estate offers up a refreshing roadside treat this Saturday, May 31, when the firm’s sales associates host their ninth annual Alex’s Lemonade Grand Stand Event, to raise money for childhood cancer causes.

Scheduled for the hours between 11 am and 3 pm, the event will benefit the Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation, which was created to honor the spirit and fundraising efforts of cancer patient Alexandra “Alex” Scott (1996-2004). To date, the foundation has raised more than $50 million, funding more than 150 research projects nationally.

Along with lemonade, hot dogs and potato chips, the Shrewsbury office’s Grand Stand will feature family friendly activities for children of all ages, including music, face painting, Cowboy Larry’s Wild Wild West Show and Covered Wagon, and more.

Joined by neighbors, the trio raised close to $200 through lemonade, candy and cookie sales at their Forrest Avenue home. (Photo by Dustin Racioppi; click to enlarge)
