Dorney Park Announces Results of 2016 Lemonade Days Efforts

Dorney Park & Wildwater Kingdom has wrapped up another successful summer season of supporting the Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation.  The park's annual 'Lemonade Days' fundraising resulted in a large donation that was recently presented to the Foundation and one of their Hero Families during the Pediatric Cancer Awareness Day event held at the amusement park.

In total, Dorney Park was able to raise and donate an impressive $70,595 in 2016, bringing their two year total to more than $110,000.  The partnership with Alex's Lemonade Stand just started in 2015, when the park raised more than $40,000.  This summer the park expanded the ways for guests to make a difference, including hosting a Lemon Run 5K, a social media sharing campaigns, an in-park Lemonade Stand during Kids Fest, and more.  Additionally a portion of the park's online ticket sales were donated.

“We look forward to a continued partnership and are happy to work together to assist all those in joining the fight against childhood cancer,” said Michael Fehnel, Vice President & General Manager of Dorney Park and Wildwater Kingdom.

Congratulations to the park on their efforts, we're already looking forward to more fun events benefiting the Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation in 2017!
