Again this year, all of the gingerbread houses will be donated to Rosie's Place to help these homeless shelters enhance the holiday spirits for those less fortunate. Additionally, all winners' cash prizes will be matched by Dining Services and donated to 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.
