It's already been a busy and touching month for volunteers, staff and supporters of Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF). 

In addition to hosting Alex's "Original" Lemonade Stand on June 9, when family, friends and supporters commemorate the foundation's namesake's annual traditional of holding a lemonade stand in her neighborhood, the organization celebrated the Seventh Annual Great Chefs Event, National Lemonade Days, the construction of a LEGO lemonade stand and numerous other support from its sponsors. 

The "Original" Lemonade Stand last Saturday featured Alex's family, friends and supporters come together for the annual tradition, which featured food, games and a butterfly release. 

On June 12, the annual Great Chefs event featured stars converging at the Urban Outfitters Headquarters in the Navy Yard to cook for childhood cancer cures. Host Marc Vetri, Jose Garces and "Top Chef" judge Tom Colicchio were among the famous faces at the event 

ALSF kicked off National Lemonade Days from June 7 to June 9 with LEGO Friends and the National Constitution Center visitors by building the world's largest lemonade stand constructed completely out of LEGO bricks near the Center.
