If you wanted lemonade yesterday, you were in luck.
Over 30 stands popped up throughout county. They were part of the 6th annual Angel-Ade, a fundraiser for the great Al’s Angels children’s charity.
Then there was the stand on the corner of Stoneboat and Red Coat Roads.
It’s not the most well-traveled spot in town. But 4 neighborhood kids — 9-year-olds Sophie Chan and Jessica Selzer, and 6-year-olds Torey Chan and Jacob Selzer — decided to raise money for St. Jude’s.
They sold fruit cups for $2, cookies (2 for $2), and lemonade ($1).
A guy in a black Porsche 911 drove past. He slowed down, circled back, got out and talked with the kids.
He bought a lemonade, and handed them $100.
Jessica said she could not break the bill.
He told her: “Keep the change.”
The Selzers’ mom Jodi said, “We never met this man before. We were shocked by his generosity.”
The kids raised $215. Chances are, for the rest of their lives they’ll never forget that great $100 gift, from a man they did not even kn0w.
