The Pugliese family will be volunteering their time to sell lemonade to help raise money for research to battle childhood cancer Sunday.
After Pugliese's 8-year-old daughter Alexandra watched a video on the history of Alex’s Lemonade Stand, the family decided that they wanted to host their own event, a release from the company stated.
The Alex’s Lemonade Stand will be setup at 135 Parsonage St. on Sunday from 1 to 9 p.m. All proceeds will benefit Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation.

The Pugliese's stand is part of a national campaign called "Lemonade Days," where people from across the country sell the summer treat from June 8-10 to fight against childhood cancer, according to the release. This June marks the ninth year of the event and "an estimated 10,000 volunteers at more than 2,000 Alex’s Lemonade Stands" have raised more than a million dollars, the release said.
