Indian Hill families raise over $ 77,000 with children’s hospital lemonade stand

An Indian Hill family raised over $ 77,000 this year for the Children’s Hospital, all thanks to a lemonade stand. The Zerbe and Weidner families have started fundraising each year with a lemonade stand outside their Indian Hill home. Since the project began years ago, it has raised over $ 300,000 for the hospital. It all started when the boys from Zerbe decided to set up a lemonade stand in front of their Indian Hill home. They invited the Weidner family and their three children to join in the fun. In their first year, the kids raised $ 148. Moms Amanda Zerbe and Hillary Weidner decided to teach their children about generosity and decided to donate the money to the Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center. The children’s hospital holds a special place in the life of the Weidners. Their eldest daughter, Beatrice, has spent countless hours within her walls after receiving a kidney transplant at just 6 months old. Hillary Weidner was his donor. Beatrice Weidner is now in first grade and her mother says she is thriving. To thank the Children’s Hospital for caring for Beatrice, the mothers donated the $ 148 and asked social media to help them match their children’s income. Within days, friends, celebrities and strangers helped raise over $ 200,000. Last year during the pandemic, the kids still managed to raise $ 10,000 from their lemonade stand and virtual fundraiser. This year their goal was to raise $ 20,000 and they far exceeded that number by raising over $ 77,000. “It’s crazy,” Hillary Weidner said. “I mean, it’s just that there is no amount of money that we can ever raise to update what we received from the hospital. So even if we could donate 45 million, that wouldn’t even touch how much we feel indebted to them. ”
