ValPLAYso Children's Committee to Host Lemonade Fundraiser


The ValPLAYso Children's committee will be hosting a Lemonade stand fundraiser July 19th 10:00-2:00. ALL donation proceeds will be going to the community build of ValPLAYso: the Next Generation. The Children's Committee set a goal of $2000.00 by the time the build happens October 6-12.

One special Children's Committee member, Izzy, saw an opportunity and set up a lemonade stand during her subdivision 4th of July celebration.

"Izzy came up with the idea about having a Lemonade Stand all on her own," her mom Allyson Murphy said. "She had so much fun squeezing the lemons, buying the cupcakes, cookies, candy, and July 4th items so she could raise these funds for ValPLAYso."

Izzy's stand raised over $350.00 and money is still coming in from friends and family.

"Izzy has had the best time being a part of the committee. She's so excited to be able to play on a playground that is accessible to all children. Most excited that she'll be able to "roll around" the playground with the new flooring! She can't wait to play at this park," Allyson said.

The good news spread about Izzy's big heart and leadership skills. Michelle Bush (Reilly C. Bush Foundation) currently has a fund at the Porter County Community Foundation (PCCF) that allows her family to give back. She just announced that they would match her fundraising efforts up to $1,000!
