ATLANTA, May 31, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Monkey Joe's, a children's entertainment center filled with indoor jumps, slides and obstacle courses, announces its second year of partnership with Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF), a nonprofit dedicated to finding cures for all kids with cancer. Throughout June, participating Monkey Joe's locations will host events and promotions to raise funds for ALSF, as well as donate a percentage of all June lemonade sales to the organization.
"According to the American Childhood Cancer Organization, an estimated 250,000 new cases of cancer affect children worldwide under the age of 20 every year," explains Candi Kelley, Director of Operations at Monkey Joe's.
