Profits Support Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation for Childhood Cancer Research
LAKE WALES, Fla., May 18, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Summer is undeniably lemonade season. One out of three households in the U.S. purchase lemonade to enjoy during the summer months. Just in time for hotter days, Florida's Natural® Brand is introducing a line of all-new, all-natural, not-from-concentrate lemonades, including Lemonade Iced Tea, Lemonade with Strawberry and Lemonade with Pomegranate.
The new lemonades, along with Florida's Natural traditional lemonade, are made with natural ingredients like real cane sugar and juices grown and sourced in the United States. The lemonades offer an iconic, refreshing taste, are never concentrated and have no artificial ingredients or preservatives.

About 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. To date, Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation, a registered 501(c)3 charity, has raised more than $140 million toward fulfilling Alex's dream of finding a cure, funding over 690 pediatric cancer research projects nationally.
