Even in the rain, folks remained thirsty for a cure for cancer on Sunday at a local lemonade stand which has become an annual tradition on the corner of Luquer Road and Leeds Drive in Port Washington.
Organized by resident Deborah Levine M.D., the Pink Lemonade for Breast Cancer Charity started 10 years ago after a young cousin of a Port Washington resident was diagnosed with cancer at age of 36 following the birth of her child.
Since then, the stand has raised more than $60,000 in lemonade sales throughout Port Washington and communities throughout the country.
The stand, run by the Jackman, Katz and Goldberg families, raised $200 this year despite inclement weather.
All proceeds have been donated to Young Survival Coalition, an international non-profit dedicated specifically to the needs of young woman with breast cancer through education, advocacy and research.
