HAMPTON ROADS, Va. – Lemonade and summer go hand in hand, and now you can stir in a serving of charity, too. This July, hundreds of lemonade stands will pop up throughout Hampton Roads to raise money during Anthem LemonAid weekend.

Children’s Hospital of The King’s Daughters has teamed up with Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield to help raise awareness and funds for the fight against childhood cancer at CHKD.

The annual Anthem LemonAid weekend will be July 19, 20, and 21, 2019. Families, businesses, and community groups are encouraged to register and participate to benefit childhood cancer treatment at CHKD. Last year, 785 LemonAid stands raised more than $95,000 for CHKD’s cancer program.

To support the success of the LemonAid stands, each participant will receive a free LemonAid kit that includes lemonade mix, cups, a pitcher, signs, and more. Lemonade is sold for a $1 donation and 100 percent of proceeds will benefit CHKD’s cancer program.
