Liz Scott named keynote speaker for NCCCC event
New Castle County Chamber of Commerce (NCCCC) named Liz Scott, co-executive director of Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation and mother to founder Alexandra “Alex” Scott, as the keynote speaker for its 26th Annual Entrepreneurial & Business Women’s Expo.
Registration is open for the expo, scheduled for Thursday, Nov. 17 from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. at the Chase Center on the Riverfront. This event is designed to motivate and inspire all business women by providing exciting networking opportunities, as well as educational workshops and programs.
Alex’s Lemonade Stand is a childhood cancer foundation dedicated to raising funds for research into new treatments and cures for all children battling cancer. Liz and her husband Jay happily served as helpers to their daughter, after she decided to hold a lemonade stand to help other children with cancer. The grassroots effort grew into a national movement following Alex’s untimely death at the age of eight in 2004.
Scott will speak about the story of her daughter as the motivation for Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation, how to make a difference, and more. To learn more about Alex’s story, watch the introduction to the award-winning documentary, Alex Scott: A Stand For Hope at https://youtu.be/9PSSuFQ48e0.
NCCCC President Mark Kleinschmidt encourages registrants to kindly add a $5 donation to Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation at the time of registration. For registration details and sponsorship opportunities visit www.ncccc.com.
