The legacy of  Alexandra Scott, the 5-year-old from Lower Merion who began a lemonade stand to benefit childhood cancer research before succumbing to the disease, will continue Wednesday in Chester County.

The Chester County Bar Association will host stands from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at six locations throughout the county: the Chester County Bar Association ,15 W. Gay St., West Chester; and five law firms:  Gawthrop Greenwood, PC; Lamb McErlane PC, and Lieberman & Kohler & Hall, all in downtown West Chester; Larmore Scarlett LLP in Kennett Square; and Elizabeth R. Howard in Phoenixville.

Joel Frank, a partner at Lamb McErlane, said he saw a prersentation by Alex's parents, Liz and Jay Scott, who were seeking ways to expand their network. That led to the Bar Association, where its director, Wendy Hoffman, embraced the idea, Frank said.

"It was amazing; they just jumped on the idea,"  said Liz Scott. "I feel very lucky to have people who are so supportive."  She said  the foundation has raised more than $40 million for childhood cancer since 2004, a number she expects to get close to $50 million by year's end.
