The Zhen Music and Arts Institute (ZMAAI) will be hosting an art show benefitting Alex’s Lemonade Foundation.
The art show will be on display at the institute from April 3 to May 14. Receptions for the art show will be held on the following dates:
- April 3 at 3 p.m.
- April 24 at 3 p.m.
Proceeds from the artwork sales will be donated to pediatric cancer funding in honor of Alex Podeszwa, a student at ZMAAI, who lost his 9 year battle at the age of 14 to neuroblastoma.
Alex’s Lemonade Stand was founded by Alexandra Scott, who battled her own case of neuroblastoma for 8 years. After receiving a stem cell transplant in 2000, Scott told her mother she wanted to have a lemonade stand saying she wanted to donate the money made to doctors to “help kids like me”. After raising an estimated $2000 with her brother from the first lemonade stand, it has become an annual tradition for her family.
