Lemonade Stand With A Cause

ROYAL OAK (WWJ) –  A four-year-old girl opens her first lemonade stand on one of the hottest days in July to help her mom raise money for cancer cure.

Elana Howse has dreamed of having a lemonade stand for as long as she can remember. On Sunday, Elana will get the chance to make that lemonade stand a reality.

Although, it is expected to be a scorcher (temps in the high 90s with oppressive humidity) Howse will attempt to provide some relief to anyone brave enough to venture out into the heat with a cup of refreshing ice cold, fresh-squeezed lemonade.

A cup of lemonade is only 50 cents and the proceeds from lemonade sale will support her mom who is raising money for the Susan G. Komen 3-Day Walk for the Cure.

“Lemo-made taste good and I can raise money for mommy’s walk,” says Howse when asked why she wants a lemonade stand.

The lemonade stand, located on Maplewood in Royal Oak will be open from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m on Sunday.

Howse’s mother, Sheila was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2009 and has committed to participate in this year’s Susan G. Komen 3-Day for the Cure walk taking place August 12-14.
