A simple lemonade stand, nothing more then a table, a chair, a cold pitcher of lemonade, some cups, and a girl with a passion. Either fresh squeezed or from a powder, it doesn’t matter the way you make it; it’s all delicious and goes to a good cause.On Sunday, August 29, 2016, two young girls named Savannah and Hayden – with a passion to help those that help others when they need them most – started a lemonade stand. They were a family with its roots in the thin blue line, who were looking to support other families of First Responders.With numerous customers in the first hours, there were visits from the O’Fallon Fire Fighters, Saint Charles County Ambulance District, and the area’s Police Departments. In total, these dedicated girls raised $618.53 all of which was donated to Responder Rescue, a support ground for our first responders.
What’s Up St. Chuck would like to congratulate these girls on a job well done, and thank them for supporting our Men and Women who put their lives on the line daily to protect us all, no matter where they may be.
