This lemonade stand is for a great cause

Proceeds from Pulaski boy’s stand will go toward cancer research


Somerset —

“Joshua is just realizing how many kids out there have cancer diagnosed daily,” said Tamara. “... It really means a lot (to be able to help) since there are so many kids out there that have cancer. The federal funds just aren’t there for the research. They’re (the children) are our future.”
Young Joshua has never made lemonade before — so certainly Mom will be giving him a hand.
“That should be interesting,” said Tamara with a laugh.
She noted that all the money raised goes to children’s cancer research. Those visiting can donate whatever they wish for the cost of the lemonade.
The hope for the Bevell family is to raise as much as $1,000 through their summertime effort.
 The 132 Hillrise Drive address is located between Whitaker Road and Campground Road, off of Ky. 1247. The event will be held from noon to 5 p.m. today.
Tamara said she’s “definitely” proud of Joshua for wanting to do something to help.
“It’s like, ‘Okay, I must have done something right,’” she said.
