Attention New Yorkers! This Sunday, 46NYC is hosting their third annual Alex’s Lemonade Stand fundraiser in Central Park to fight childhood cancer. Bachelorette and Bachelor Pad star, Graham Bunn, and co-creators of 46NYC (Hal Kivette and John McGinn), are hosting this event on Sunday and will be joined by some of the most fabulous Bachelor alums out there – Aria Luyendyk, Nick Peterson, Rachel Truehart, Chris Bukowski, Ryan Bowers, Ashley Hebert, JP Rosenbaum, Michelle Money, Ed Swiderski, Bob Guiney, Ashley Spivey and Reid Rosenthal.

Time: 1 – 5PM

46NYC initially partnered with Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF) in creating the “cur46le” t-shirt. Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF) emerged from the front yard lemonade stand of
cancer patient Alexandra “Alex” Scott (1996-2004). 2010 marks 10 years since 4-year-old Alex announced that she wanted to hold a lemonade stand to raise money to help find a cure for all children with cancer. Since Alex held that first stand, the Foundation bearing her name has evolved into a national fundraising movement, complete with thousands of volunteers across the country carrying on her legacy of hope. To date, Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation, a registered 501(c)3 charity, has raised more than $50 million towards fulfilling Alex’s dream of finding a cure, funding over 200 research projects nationally.
Founded in 2007, 46NYC is an apparel company that designs and manufactures its own line of apparel
and accessories to raise money and awareness for multiple areas of need. Created by three easy-going, t-shirt loving kind of guys(Graham, Hal and John), 46NYC grew from their dream to provide consumers with a fashionable way to be involved with causes that matter. 46NYC has built solid partnerships with numerous worthwhile children’s charitable organizations, including ALSF, while offering a wide array of products that are durable, high-quality, comfortable and stylish.
