Oak Brook wedding to support Alex's Lemondade Stand Foundation

OAK BROOK – Planning a wedding brings with it an endless list of decisions that directly impact that special day. For Patrick Martinez and Naperville native Jamie Casey, the choice of what favor to give their guests to commemorate their wedding presented an opportunity to make an impact.

Instead of giving gifts to attendees, the couple is giving back, and encouraging invitees to do the same.

Guests at the Martinez wedding will be asked to support the couple’s commitment to Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation, a national nonprofit dedicated to finding a cure for all kids with cancer. The couple has committed $1,000 in lieu of wedding favors with the reception taking place Monday in Oak Brook.

Patrick Martinez first heard about Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation through his position as financial advisor at Northwestern Mutual – The Kelley Financial Group located in Cincinnati. Northwestern Mutual, through its Foundation, supports Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation as one of its national nonprofits in conjunction with its Childhood Cancer Program.

As their favors, the couple will have postcards complete with lemonade packets and straws at each reception table where guests can either scan a QR code or visit the wedding’s donation page to pledge their support.
