Pay It Forward – Alex’s Lemonade Stand

This summer, 94.3 The Point and myself and Irwin Cars in Freehold will be spotlighting and volunteering at local charities and non-profits. Our goal is to spotlight the people and places in Monmouth and Ocean counties that are making a difference. This weekend, I visited the Booker family of Brick’s Alex’s Lemonade stand.

This was a family event for the Booker’s who, like many families, have had to battle cancer in different forms. Christian Booker’s mother struggled with cancer and his wife Andrea beat cancer and has been healthy for two years.

He said it was important that he and his family did this together and that he educate his children at a young age that there is a difference about wanting to be a part of change and actually being a part of it. “Sure, I’d like to be out by the pool this weekend, but this is more important.”

The family was stationed between Five Below and Kohl’s in Brick Saturday from 12-6 and Sunday from 12-6.

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.

94.3 The Point and Matt Ryan are looking to help local charities this summer and we need your help!

Tell us about your local charity. If you’re chosen, Matt and the Point Crew will come to your organization and help out for a day. We’ll throw a Pay It Forward wrap party at Rella’s Tavern for all the involved charities and one group will receive $1,000 from Irwin Cars.
