boys raise money for Down syndrome with lemonade

The Rosser boys, Brendan, 7, and Brett, 4, turned a recent cloudy day in one full of sunshine. When the Springfield boys learned their father sponsored a hole for a golf tournament for Down Syndrome, they asked many questions about Down Syndrome and then decided they wanted to help. The tournament, The Lil Bealsy Tee-Up for Down Syndrome, is Friday, Aug. 19.

After much thought, the Rossers decided to have a lemonade stand to try to earn money to help the children.

They first set up their stand at a park, but there were no customers. After making a couple of calls, Brendan and Brett set up business at the Acme on Baltimore Pike.

They learned first hand how many people are willing to help a good cause. The boys made $89 and served each customer with a smile, explaining why they were selling lemonade.

The boys delivered the money to the founder of the organization, Brian Beale.
