Audra Snead, Susan Ogden and Melissa Moore love the opportunity to teach their children the joy of giving by raising money for others in need. Last year, their children collectively hosted lemonade stands for the schools in Houston that were impacted by Hurricane Harvey and the Children’s Hunger Fund. They were blown away by the success of the events and the support from their local community.
On August 8, they did it again, but this time with a local tie. After knowing the story of Preston Hall, a 10-year-old boy going into fourth grade at Johnson Elementary who has never known life without complex medical conditions, they decided to raise money to help financially support and encourage Preston’s family while bringing together the community to work toward a common purpose.
Sawyer and Ridgely Snead; Ellie-Cate and Eden Ogden; and Micah, Maddox, and Katherine Moore sold lemonade, donated by Chick-fil-A, and hydrated the masses who wanted to support the worthy cause. They ended up raising $1,200 throughout the day, which went to support Preston’s stay at the Boston Children’s Complex Care Clinic, where he’s currently a patient enrolled in a clinical trial.
