The face of a child never occurs to me when someone speaks of cancer. Yet, 700 children (and their families) worldwide receive that devastating diagnosis each year. Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation was started by a 4-year old battling neuroblastoma. She wanted to give "her doctors and hospital" money to help other kids like her. There’s more on Alex’s non-profit, below.
Do Some Research
Spamming every event with the same pitch isn’t going to do you much good. That’s where a majority of amateur musicians make their mistake. They don’t realize that talent buyers have seen it all and can pick out serious inquiries from punks with a computer.

The FestivalNet Giving Tree
It's my (Marisa) honor to have chosen this month's Giving Tree recipient: Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation for Childhood Cancer. ALSF started with one lemonade stand, hosted by founder Alexandra ‘Alex' Scott in her front yard. She was four and raised $2,000.
She died at eight in 2004 of neuroblastoma. In her too short, but extraordinary life, Alex raised $1,000,000 and inspired a legacy of hope and cures for pediatric cancer.
Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation will receive a portion of FestivalNet's gross profits this month. See all our apples up on our Giving Tree page!
