The 2016 "physical" fundraiser for Lauren's Lemonade Stand was at the Chickasaw Festival in Tishomingo. This year she raised money for two veteran foundations; Paws for Purple Hearts and Mission 22. Once again, records were broken!

  • $1,100 and change was raised, more than any lemonade stand
  • Over 1,000 people visited the stand on Saturday, Oct. 1st
  • 15 gallons of fresh, homemade lemonade was gone in a matter of hours, as much as the three previous years COMBINED!

Remember, even though the stand is over for this year, you can donate 365 days of the year from this very site by going to our GoFundMe account page or you can write a check! THANK YOU!

My Dad, Ryan, a LPC Candidate (Counselor) in Ardmore.

I'm a middle school student at Plainview in Ardmore, OK.
I love to play softball and love to dance, which I've been a part of since I was old enough to walk. This next semester, I am on the 8th grade cheerleading team. I love school and serving my classmates; this year I am the President of the Middle School STUCO (Student Council) and the President of the FCCLA (short for Family, Career and Community Leaders of America, once known as the FHA).  God and my family are the most important things to me and I have a deep love and respect for the men and women of our military. My Dad was in the Army, my great Uncle served in Vietnam and was awarded a Purple Heart, my cousin Seth served in Operation Iraqi Freedom, my PaPa Lawson and my Great Grandfather Austin were in the Army and my Great Grandfather (x4) Compston was a Medal of Honor winner in the Civil War.   I also love our furry friends, which is why I started my lemonade stand with help from my Dad a few years ago. All the foundations that we (my friends and myself) are so important and I want to help as much as I can. Thank you and God Bless you!!! ~ ♥ Lauren
