RICHMOND, Va. -- Anthem LemonAid is returning to Richmond this Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

The signature event has been raising money to help children fight cancer at Children’s Hospital of Richmond at VCU (CHoR) since 2001.

"This summer, Richmond-area families, businesses and community organizations, can join together to make a big difference for local kids with cancer by setting up a lemonade stand the weekend of July 20-22," Rachel Bruni, Executive Director, Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals at Children’s Hospital Foundation, said. "It’s free to participate and supplies are provided. Every registered participant will receive lemonade mix, cups, a pitcher, a banner, stickers and sunglasses. Stands can be set up at one of the approved partner retail locations or at a place of participants’ choosing, such as a local business, front yard, or neighborhood pool."

Instead of buying lemonade from the stand, thirsty neighbors make a donation in exchange for the refreshing drink.

All the money raised from Anthem LemonAid will "support the $250,000 fundraising goal," Bruni said.
