Alex's Lemonade Stand - Sayville children raise money for Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation for Childhood Cancer
The Concept of Alex's Lemonade Stand
In 2000, a 4 year old cancer patient named Alexandra "Alex" Scott announced a seemingly simple idea -she was holding a lemonade stand to raise money to help "her doctors" find a cure for kids with cancer. The idea was put into action by Alex and her older brother, Patrick, when they set up the first "Alex's Lemonade Stand for Childhood Cancer" on their front lawn in July of 2000.

For the next four years, despite her deteriorating health, Alex held an annual lemonade stand to raise money for childhood cancer research. Following her inspirational example, thousands of lemonade stands and other fundraising events have been held across the country by children, schools, businesses, and organizations, all to benefit Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation for childhood cancer. On August 1st, 2004, Alex died peacefully at the age of 8 -- she had raised over $1 million for childhood cancer research in her short lifetime

Please take a moment to visit our online fundraising page and make a donation. It's really easy - you can donate by credit card and receive a record of your donation.

All donations are secure and sent directly to Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation. Please join me in supporting Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation and a fabulous cause!

Lost at Sea Cruise

Please join us on Saturday, July 22nd, 2006, from 8 pm to 12 pm for a Dinner/Benefit cruise. A buffet dinner and open bar will be available and the Mid Life Crisis band will be playing for your entertainment. Ticket prices are $75 a person with all proceeds donated to Kevin Scudero’s medical fund. Kevin is suffering from Huntington's disease. Huntington's disease (HD) results from genetically programmed degeneration of brain cells, called neurons, in certain areas of the brain. This degeneration causes uncontrolled movements, loss of intellectual faculties, and emotional disturbance. HD is a familial disease, passed from parent to child through a mutation in the normal gene. Some early symptoms of HD are mood swings, depression, irritability or trouble driving, learning new things, remembering a fact, or making a decision. As the disease progresses, concentration on intellectual tasks becomes increasingly difficult and the patient may have difficulty feeding himself or herself and swallowing. The rate of disease progression and the age of onset vary from person to person. Kevin and his family are currently paying for his medical expenses. Any help we can give him will be a tremendous benefit. Kevin is a class of 1990 Sayville High School graduate. In addition, he was a star player for the Sayville football team from 1987-1990.
Thank you for taking the time to read Kevin’s story. We hope to see all of you for this worthy cause. Your help is greatly appreciated. For more information, visit and see show dates.

Cocktail Party to Honor the Memory of Sean Cone

Sean died suddenly on November 9, 2005. He had been diagnosed with a rare form of arthritis about a year ago. Because of his illness he was unable to work, so he moved his family to North Carolina in hopes of a more affordable way of life. Sean was born and raised in Sayville. He graduated from Sayville schools, after which he worked for Bancker construction. Sean married Colleen Martino in 2003 and soon after they had a baby girl Makayla, who just turned one in October. Sean was buried in North Carolina since his wife and daughter plan to stay there. We would like the opportunity to honor Sean's memory here in Sayville because so many people have expressed how much Sean has meant to them. We are trying to raise money for Makayla's future. Without having a father she will face many obstacles in life so hopefully we ca offset some financial burdens that may lie ahead.

Event was held: March 31, 2006
Place: Land's End Restaurant, 80 Browns River Road, Sayville

For more information about the event or if you would like to make a donation call Stacey at 589-5030
