On Saturday, October 5th, employees and their families, from both Hatzel & Buehler and Bluestone Communications, participated in the End Childhood Cancer Walk/Run (formerly known as The Lemon Run). The race raises funds and awareness for childhood cancer and is the Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation’s largest special event with nearly 3,000 people attending. In addition to employee participation, Hatzel & Buehler and Bluestone Communications actively participated in event fundraising. The Foundation and its heroic efforts towards fighting childhood cancer are hugely important to our organization.
On June 13th, employees from Hatzel & Buehler and Bluestone Communications participated in the 13th Annual Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation Telethon, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Employees answered phones, processed donations and helped support other Telethon functions. The 14-hour on-air benefit, for the Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation, raised nearly $7,000,000 for pediatric cancer research. Over its 13 years on-air, the event has raised over $36,000,000 for the cause.
