Local Families and Ribbon Café Team Up to Raise Money for 3-year-old with Cancer in Ballston Spa

BALLSTON SPA — Come enjoy a nice cold glass of lemonade, buy snacks, listen to music and shop some vendors on July 30 at Ribbon Café and put your money towards a real local cause. Several local families are teaming up with the locally known restaurant to provide a sweet treat stand in the hopes of raising money for Jagger Zopp, a local 3-year-old with cancer.

Ribbon Café will be putting on a Lemonade Stand, all proceeds benefiting a local 3-year-old with cancer. Jagger was diagnosed with Rhabdomyosarcoma, a rare, aggressive, fast-growing cancer. On average across the country only 400-500 people are diagnosed annually. 

The event takes place 1 – 3:30 p.m. on Saturday, July 30. Ribbon Café is located at 11 Prospect St., Ballston Spa. The Facebook event link is at: facebook.com/events/s/lemonade-stand-cancer-benefit/579349053851967/. A Go Fund Me campaign for donations has also been initiated for those who cannot attend.
