Lemonade Standemonium

The Cardel Lemonade Standemonium is taking on a new form this year, so that we can help protect our community’s health while supporting families who are facing cancer here in Ottawa. So instead of hosting a physical lemonade stand on June 6th, families across the Ottawa region will be taking a stand against cancer by hosting their very own virtual fundraisers!

We do hope to paint the town yellow with physical lemonade stands on a weekend later in the year, but for now we’ll be sharing the lemonade spirit online. Visit to learn more, or head right to to get started on creating your virtual lemonade stand!
