Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation for Childhood Cancer
In 2004, a 4-year-old cancer patient named Alexandra Scott opened a lemonade stand in her front yard to raise money to find a cure for kids with cancer. As word of Alex's fundraising spread, donations poured in worldwide. Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation was formed from this brave and pure effort.
The Foundation has two crucial goals: Raising money and awareness for pediatric cancer causes, primarily research into new cures and treatments, and encouraging and educating others, especially children, to raise funds for Alex's Lemonade Stand for childhood cancer.
Jacob Beard, a cancer survivor, is one of the children inspired by the example of Alex Scott. He has asked us to support his efforts to assist other cancer survivors. Jacob was diagnosed with a spinal tumor when he was two years old.
Now, Jacob is cancer-free; his lemonade stand raised an astonishing $15,000 through 2015! We are thrilled to be a part of this year's efforts. We have helped Jacob raise more than $3,000 in just one day by selling Country Time Lemonade, fruit kabobs and having visitors try their luck at the duck pond.
Fulfilling Hanover Inn’s Environmental Commitments
Clean Plate Club
If you cannot finish your meal, we will compost anything you leave behind. The Dartmouth Organic Farm uses our compost and local businesses to grow the herbs and vegetables used in our restaurant.
Local Food Sourcing
Food purchasing is accomplished by being sensitive to the local farmers. Our goal is to consider and utilize our abundant natural resources, especially in the kitchen, where Executive Chef Justin Dain uses season-fresh ingredients provided by local vendors to craft mouthwatering cuisine.
All paper, plastic, glass, and tin are recycled in our efforts to reduce what ends up in our landfills. If you have any waste that you are unsure where it goes, ask our staff for assistance.
Hanover Inn Dartmouth strives to meet the Green Seal's Standard and minimize the chemicals used throughout the hotel. We do all we can to reduce chemical usage overall, and for those we cannot avoid, we ensure that they are as eco-friendly as possible.
