Springfield, IL, September 29, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- Giuffre Volvo, a new and used Volvo dealership in Springfield, IL, is hosting a lemonade stand for the Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation for Childhood Cancer (ALSF) to raise money in an effort to end pediatric cancer. The fundraiser will be held on Friday, September 28 and Saturday, September 29, 2012.
ALSF got its start in 2000 when four-year-old Alexandra “Alex” Scott decided to set up a lemonade stand to raise money to help find a cure for all children with cancer. Alex had just been diagnosed with cancer and wanted to help other kids battling the disease. She died in 2004, but since that first lemonade stand, her name has evolved into a national fundraising movement, complete with thousands of supporters, including Volvo.
Giuffre Volvo is helping the effort to end pediatric cancer by holding its own lemonade stand through ALSF. Cans of lemonade will be available for one, five, ten, and twenty dollars. Giuffre Volvo will also donate five dollars for every Volvo test drive on each day, with no purchase necessary. On September 29, WNNS’s Deb West and Chris Murphy will be at the dealership to complete the Giuffre Two Week Test Drive and give away a $200 car detailing package. The event runs Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Saturday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Giuffre Volvo is located across from JCPenny’s on S. Dirksen Parkway in Springfield, IL. To learn more about ALSF, go to www.alexlemonade.org. Test drives can be scheduled by calling 888-407-9064. For more Volvo information and dealership news, visit www.facebook.com/GiuffreVolvo.
