West Bend kids host lemonade stand for boy diagnosed with brain tumor
WEST BEND, Wis. (CBS 58) -- Some kids in West Bend and their parents are selling snacks and lemonade Thursday to help raise money for a little boy who is fighting for his life.
5-year-old August Hartlaub was recently diagnosed with a brain tumor and underwent surgery in June. August's friends and their parents are holding a lemonade and bake sale at the corner of 7th and Chestnut in West Bend to help the family with their medical bills.
“I just discussed with the kids what we could do to show August how much we love him, so we came up with the idea of a lemonade stand. We thought maybe some moms and their kids would stop by, we did not expect all of West Bend to show us as much support as we have received so far,” said Candice Butzlaff.
All of the food and drinks sold were donated to the fundraiser.
