Nathan and Olivia’s Lemonade stand opens for 10th year
PEORIA (Heart of Illinois ABC) - Nathan and Olivia’s lemonade stand is a fundraiser for St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital, started by two siblings. Nathan Pennington was diagnosed with cancer when he was four years old and lost his battle in 2017. His family and friends keep his memory alive through the lemonade stand each year.
“He just meant so much to me. We had a special bond together. I know he would be proud of me; it feels good just to be able to give back,” Nathan’s sister and co-founder of the lemonade stand Olivia Pennington said.
This year, the fundraiser landed on Nathan’s birthday.
