Jay Scott, Co-Founder Of Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation
 

Today’s Philly 101 video features Jay Scott, co-founder of Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation, one of the Philadelphia area’s most beloved and successful charitable organizations.

Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation emerged from the front yard lemonade stand of cancer patient Alexandra “Alex” Scott (1996-2004), Jay’s daughter.

Since then, the Foundation bearing her name has evolved into a national fundraising movement.
