Officially starting this semester at the Newtown campus is the Bucks Lemon Club, which works with the nationally known Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation to raise money that will help families battling childhood cancer through fundraising events on campus.
The club holds meetings every other Wednesday, led by the club president Nico Albertson, an 18-year-old nursing major from Morrisville in his second semester at Bucks. The meetings are to be held in Grupp 442 every other Wednesday from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., starting on Feb. 7, and are open to all students.
Those interested in joining the club can attend the meetings at any point in the semester, or contact Nico at [email protected]
The club has a Facebook page which can be searched for as “BCCC Lemon Club.” Upcoming events, club updates, and pictures will be posted to this page.
The main event being planned is a dance marathon that will take place in the Gallagher room on April 7 from 2 to 8 p.m. The details regarding registration are still being developed, but flyers will be posted around campus with more information upon finalization. The club hopes to be able to provide free food, beverages, and T-shirts at the dance for attendees by including a small fee upon registration. They are also looking for a DJ to help keep morale high throughout the six-hour duration of the event.
Those looking to donate directly to Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation in the name of the club can do so by going to alexslemonade.org, clicking the Donate tab, and searching for Bucks County Community College.
Nico Albertson began planning the formation of this club in July 2017 after he participated in a MiniTHON event at Pennsbury High School that encouraged him to become more involved in making a change.
“MiniTHON is a real inspiration to me,” he said, adding that he loved “being able to do something fun and doing it for a great cause.” Deciding to leave the THON brand and organization up to Penn State University, Nico turned to Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation, another well-known organization helping to raise money to support children with cancer.
He has loved working with a foundation that provides so much support and free range, stating that “you can be as creative as you want to be when thinking of fundraising events.” As the weather starts to warm up again this spring, Nico plans to hold the organization’s signature lemonade stands on campus throughout the semester.
Another executive board member of the club is Alyssa Adams, a 19-year-old psychology major from Fairless Hills, who says she’s in the club because it’s all about the kids. “The impact of this foundation makes such a huge difference for so many children and their families battling this awful disease,” the Lemon Club treasurer states.
She stresses that it is “incredibly important to raise awareness and funds for childhood cancer research,” and encourages her fellow students to get involved with a cause as pure as this one.
The executive board hopes that the club’s official debut at ClubPalooza will bring in more members that are ready to make a change in the world. “It’s like they always say,” Nico joked, “the more the merrier.”
