World’s Largest LEGO Lemonade Stand at the National Constitution Center

LEGO® Friends and Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation Call on Philadelphia Builders

to Construct the World’s Largest LEGO Lemonade Stand at the National Constitution Center to

Kick Off National Lemonade Days 2012

WHAT: LEGO® Friends and Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF) host a 2-day collaborative build of the world’s largest lemonade stand made entirely of LEGO® bricks with the goal of making the 2012 National Lemonade Days (June 8-10) the biggest in its history. 2012 will mark the 9th Annual National Lemonade Days. The Lemonade Stand will be completed in time to serve lemonade on Saturday. Additional building activities will take place during the weekend. The event is free of charge, but donations are encouraged.

In connection with the event, the National Constitution Center will host a variety of interactive programs and activities to honor Alex Scott and her legacy. Children and their families will have the opportunity to make lemon-themed arts and crafts, including bracelets and key chains, which they can proudly display to raise awareness for childhood cancer research. Visitors also can take a special guided journey through the Center’s main exhibition The Story of We the People and learn about child heroes, who, like Alex, have made a difference throughout our history. The Center’s activities are free with museum admission. Children eight and under are FREE with a donation to Alex’s Lemonade Stand!

WHO: LEGO® Friends, a new construction play theme designed to engage more girls in LEGO play, and Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF), a registered 501(c)3 charity. Founded by cancer patient Alexandra “Alex” Scott (1996-2004), ALSF is a national fundraising movement to help find a cure for all children with cancer.
