DeFilippo Brothers located at 602 Lincoln Ave Prospect Park Pa 19076 and U Drive Today located at 2240 E Lincoln Highway Coatesville Pa 19320 partnered with Alex’s Lemonade Foundation to help raise money for childhood cancer research. If you have never heard of Alex’s Lemonade Organization you should check into it.

Alex Scott was the founder of Alex’s Lemonade Organization. This courageous little girl was diagnosed with Neuroblastoma in 1997 at only a year old. She held an Alex’s Lemonade stand in her front yard in an effort to help raise money for other children with cancerShe raised over $2,000.

Since her passing in 2004 her parents, Liz and Jay Scott, have continued her efforts and established Alex’s Lemonade Organization. Thanks to Alex and volunteers nationwide Alex’s Lemonade Organization has raised over one million dollars for childhood cancer research. Throughout the month of October we collected money for Alex’s Lemonade Organization by holding a water ice stand out front of our dealerships. We also offered our customers $500 off any vehicle if they donated $5 to Alex’s Lemonade Organization.

In addition, for every like we received on one of our four Facebook pages we donated $1 to Alex’s Lemonade Organization.  DeFilippo Brothers and U Drive Today is proud to say that over the month of October we helped raise over $950 for Alex’s Lemonade Organization. It was a pleasure to aid Alex’s Lemonade Organization in their fight to beat childhood cancer and look forward to assisting in the future.
