Avery's Lemonade Stand has refreshing mission: Help TGH's Children's Center

Avery's lemonade stand raises money for Tampa General Hospital

This isn't just any old lemonade stand.

Nine-year-old Avery is on a mission to help raise money for kids like her little brother.

Avery's brother Evan was born with kidney disease and got a transplant at Tampa General Hospital when he was two.

Today all lemonade sales went right to Tampa General hospital's Children's Medical Center.

So how'd it go?

In one day alone, Avery Ranieri raised over $670  by selling lemonade and fundraising. Her goal is $2,000. 

"We have a lot in our donation bucket. We had a lot of customers come buy lemonade which I'm very proud of and yeah," Avery said. 

The lemonade stand was helped by TeBella Tea company on Davis Islands which donated half of all proceeds of the lemonade to the hospital.
