We may seem like heartless critics of politicians and media types, but we do like to contribute something of value to our world. So we’re jumping at the chance to promote something that does some good.
Especially when the beneficiary is a cancer research organization, given that our families have been touched in many ways by cancer. So tomorrow, May 10, the good folks at Java Brewing Company on Frankfort Avenue (where many Page One/Ville Voice rants originate) in Louisville will host a yard sale, with the proceeds to benefit Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation for Childhood Cancer – Pediatric Cancer Research. Java will also donate 10% of its sales to the foundation.
You might remember the horse Afleet Alex, who finished third in the 2005 Derby before winning the Preakness and Belmont, and the news that was generated when its owners donated a portion of the horse’s winnings to the cause. The organization was even allowed to set up a stand at Churchill Downs.
Other businesses on Frankfort Avenue are encouraged to participate by donating a portion of their proceeds on Saturday to the foundation, which has raised more than $18 million.
Come by to help out a good cause.
