Special event to be held in Solana Beach to raise funds for childhood cancer research


It’s a sobering fact, but cancer remains the number one disease threat to children’s lives. This year Solana Beach Presbyterian Church is working to support local charity Max’s Ring of Fire in their ongoing efforts to raise awareness and funding for childhood cancer research.

Since 2009, Solana Beach Presbyterian Church (SBPC) has designated a day where it closes its worship doors on Sunday, and serves the community through service projects 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 nonprofit 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 a common form of childhood cancer.

Scheduled for this Sunday, Feb. 23, from 9:30 a.m.-noon at La Colonia Park in Solana Beach, church members along with special guests from the San Diego Star Wars Society will host a lemonade stand to raise money for research and treatments that benefit kids fighting cancer.
“SBPC’s Community Serve Day is one of the most meaningful activities we do as members of our church,” says Melissa Mikulak, Max’s mom. “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 Solana Beach Fire Department will be stopping by with a Fire Engine for the kids to checkout.

For more information on Community Serve Day, go to www.SolanaPres.org. The lemonade stand will be held at 720 Stevens Ave., Solana Beach, CA 92075.
