Fox 22 WFVX Bangor has reported of a Brewer youth taking entrepreneurship to a charitable and heartfelt direction.

Althea Nash took some time yesterday to make and sell lemonade at her lemonade stand in Brewer.  Not only is she learning the ins-and-outs of the business of a lemonade booth but she is also using the funds collected to donate to a friend of hers with Stage 3 cancer.

Althea is quoted of saying of her friend, "She’s a very nice person, and she’s already lost pretty much all of her hair. And I feel very bad."

Yesterday, Althea sold an incredible 100 cups of the sweet and sour beverage.  That's pretty good but, I've got a feeling with a few hotter days to come she could sell even more.

If you want to help in Althea's cause and buy a cup of lemonade from her, bring a couple of dollars and head over to Holyoke Street in Brewer, off of North Main Street.  She'll be tending her stand from 11 AM - 3 PM.
