Lemonade stand raises $2000 for the Salvation Army
8 year old Ana (now 9), the daughter of Henrik Wetegrove President of Claudius Peters (Americas) Inc, recently raised $1,000 for the Salvation Army in Dallas TX by hosting a street sale lemonade stand.
Ana and her friend made the lemonade by using lemons which were left over from a party the day before. Having made a stand on their street they began yelling for people to buy their lemonade, and it worked! People started to buy their lemonade paying 50ct (or more) per cup.
The Salvation army announced previously that this money would be donated to help people suffering from the outcome of Storm Harvey in Houston.
Claudius Peters (Americas) Inc. matched the funds raised by Ana, therefore doubling her fundraising to $2,000.
Langley Holdings match funding equally matches any charitable donations made by employees and their immediate families.
