ShopRite! But an unfortunate amount of progress..

Posted by Edwin Saturday, August 7, 2010

Only three days until Skate Cape May!

Its unfortunate but as of today, very little has been made in terms of progress.
Probably the biggest plus of today was securing ShopRite of Chester as one of our lemonade stand locations, meaning we have a total of 7 out of 9 locations confirmed, with Newton hazy and Heritage Surf Shop being a very likely candidate.
* As for a suggestion by my mom, we may call the Sussex County Library in Newton tomorrow as to whether we could set up a stand there.

As for places to stay, we began calling and emailing various hotels, but to no avail. We also started to call churches but none were available since nobody would pick up, likely because there was nobody there today. We will thus be calling tomorrow hopefully to speak with someone there.

We're especially worried about finding places to stay in Hillsborough, Browns Mills, and Hammonton, as in several other places my mother has actually placed fallback hotel reservations in case we cannot find anywhere else to stay. The three towns mentioned above are troublesome because their rates are either too high or too far away from our lemonade stand locations.

If anyone can help us find a place to stay, help us out by contacting us at!

We'll see what progress we can make tomorrow!

Skate Cape May is a 200+ mile skateboarding journey from the top of New Jersey (High Point) to the bottom (Cape May) with the intent to raise funds for Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation for Childhood Cancer Research. Last year, we received an award as a Top 100 Fundraiser for 2010 for ALSF!
