A Wetaskiwin teen is embracing the entrepreneurial spirit to aid another youth in a nearby community.

A local family contacted The Pipestone Flyer July 27 about a lemonade stand sale held Thursday, July 28 to raise money for a Beaumont teen who was recently attacked. The local kids lemonade stand raised almost $1,300 to help out.

“Hello, I wanted to let you know that my 15 year old daughter has heard the story of Braydon Heather, the boy who was found in Beaumont assaulted,” stated an email.

“She is having a lemonade stand and bake sale on Thursday July 28 in Wetaskiwin on Main Street, from 2 p.m. to 7 p.m. with all proceeds going directly to him and his family to help aid in his recovery.

“She has got support from the local community and from fellow businesses as well. She has distributed posters and has created an event on Facebook for this event. She has also involved her local church in helping with donating money for this cause.

“We do not know Braydon Heather or his family… just a 15 year old girl helping out another youth!”

Samantha Cardinal Elder, the boss of the lemonade stand, said she has a young cousin who lives in Beaumont who is about the same age as the young fellow who was badly beaten a few weeks ago. She said she wanted to do something to help him out.

When asked how the lemonade sales were doing on a hot, sunny afternoon, Cardinal Elder said, “Really good.”
