Iron Cupcake Challenge for Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation


 The first ever Iron Cupcake Challenge Moorestown will be held this Friday evening at the Green Apple Bistro on Main Street. I am so excited to bring this fun event to our little town and am thrilled that we are doing a charity auction in conjunction with the cupcake throwdown! All proceeds from the auction will benefit ALEX'S LEMONADE STAND FOUNDATION, which aids pediatric cancer patients and their families. It is amazing how the town has rallied together to help me with this wonderful and fun event. Area businesses have donated gift certificates, cooking products, books, and many other great finds!! Philadelphia Sports Teams such as the Philadelphia Flyers Hockey organization, the Philadelphia 76'ers Basketball group and the Philadelphia Phillies (2008 World Series Champs) are all lending a hand for this worthy cause! We will even have a visit from the famous green furry PHILLIE PHANATIC!! I am so thrilled. The sports team have generously donated autographed sports gear such as Hockey pucks, sticks, posters, and the like with star players signatures like Simone Gagne and Claude Giroux! Alex's Lemonade Stand representatives will be on hand to help the youngsters of town hold their very own lemonade stand so they too can be involved in the fundraising effort! I have volunteers such as dee-jays, sound techs (provided microphone), news media coverage, and so much more! The judging panel includes our town Mayor Dan Roccato, local ABC News6 Anchorman Rick Williams, former Philadelphia Hockey player and Ambassador to the Flyers Organization,Bob-the Hound-Kelly and official Moorestown Judicial Courts, Honorable Judge Lois Downey! What a panel of stars and what a star studded event! I feel so blessed to live in such a wonderful town and to be able to put together this charity benefit for Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation! Without all the help of some wonderful people, this event would've only been about the cupcakes, but it is really about so much more--cupcakes and charity--perfect together!!!
