CHILDREN RAISE $3,800 WITH LEMONADE STAND

On August 10th a group of 6 local children (Avery, Jaxson, Alexis, Brennan, Travis and Orianna) set up their 3rd Annual Lemonade Stand including cookies in the lobby of Windsor Regional Hospital’s Metropolitan Campus, with the goal of raising money to help sick children in Windsor Essex County by donating the funds raised to W.E. Care for Kids.

In 2014, with their first Lemonade Stand, the group raised a remarkable $600 for W.E. Care for Kids.  In 2015, they set their sights even higher with a goal of $1,000 and exceeded that goal by raising $1,800. On August 10, 2016 Avery, Jaxson, Alexis, Brennan, Travis and Orianna set up their 3rd Lemonade Stand with an ambitious goal of raising $3,000.  Once again, this amazing group exceeded their goal.

On Friday September 16th at 4 P.M., they will present the W.E. Care for Kids Foundation with a cheque for $3,800!

They have already started planning for their 4th Annual Lemonade Stand and hope that their success will inspire other children in the area to do some fundraising of own to support local pediatric health care in their community.

Windsor Essex Care For Kids Foundation is dedicated to enhancing the health and wellness of children in Windsor and Essex County through fundraising initiatives.  Since 1997, W.E. Care For Kids has raised more $7.2 million in support of equipment for paediatric programs and services at Leamington District Memorial Hospital, Windsor Regional Hospitals, John McGivney Children’s Centre, the Windsor Essex Therapeutic Riding Association and the Ronald McDonald House Windsor
