Lemonade stand benefiting Kids’ Cancer Research to be held Feb 24 in Carmel Valley

A lemonade stand will be held Sunday, Feb. 24, from 9:30 a.m.-noon at Solana Highlands Elementary School to raise money for kids fighting cancer.

What do Max’s Ring of Fire, Solana Beach Presbyterian Church and the San Diego Star Wars Society have in common? They join forces this Sunday, Feb. 24, from 9:30 a.m.-noon at Solana Highlands Elementary School (located at 3520 Long Run Dr  San Diego, 92130) to host a lemonade stand to raise money for kids fighting cancer.

Since 2009, Solana Beach Presbyterian Church (SBPC) has designated a day where it closes its worship doors on Sunday in lieu of serving the community through service projects all up and down the coast. One of the 150 projects the church has identified is a Lemonade Stand to benefit Max’s Ring of Fire, a local non-profit that raises money and awareness for childhood cancer research. Carmel Valley residents and church members founded Max’s Ring of Fire after their son Max Mikulak died in 2008 at age 7 from Neuroblastoma, a common form of childhood cancer.

“It’s a sobering fact that cancer remains the number one disease threat to children’s lives,” states Andy Mikulak, Max’s dad. Childhood cancer takes more children’s lives than asthma, cystic fibrosis, diabetes and pediatric AIDS – combined.

“SBPC’s Community Serve Day is one of the most meaningful activities we do as members of our church,” say the Mikulak’s.  “It’s an opportunity to work alongside our friends and neighbors, and to be able to serve others in our communities and beyond.”

In addition to being able to help support a great cause by making a donation for a cup of lemonade or home baked goodies, the San Diego Star Wars Society will be on hand for photo opportunities, and you may even be able to spar with Darth Vader or a Jedi Knight (don’t forget your light saber!), or direct traffic with a Storm Trooper. The San Diego Star Wars Society takes great pride in supporting non-profits that support children’s causes.
