German, King's, Lemons, and Cancer

These four words pretty much sum up the 2018 Lemonade Day Galveston County Program for Ella. 

She decided on a German theme this year and met with Hans, the owner of King's Biergarten in Pearland, to secure a spot.  She not only secured a spot with him, but he and his wife, Meghan, went above and beyond to support her in every way possible.  

First of all, they support her as a young musician and allow her to play on stage with the Enzian Buam band, when possible.  Secondly, on Lemonade Day, they provided a beautiful German backdrop, a skirted table complete with a tent set up to protect her from the sun,  and an ice chest filled with ice.  As if that wasn't enough, they also made a generous monetary donation.  

All she had to do was show up, sell her German-inspired lemonade, and entertain her customers with a little fiddle music.  

Support doesn't get much better than that.  So Hans and Meghan...from one-pint sized entrepreneur to another, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts!💛💚

Stand Name inspired by Hans (the owner), el (what we call Ella for short), and Pretzel (well...a German staple)

Ella found a cause greater than our neighborhood.  Studies purport lemons help fight off cancer, so what better cause to support than a family she admires trying to fight off this horrible disease.  

And, she ended on a sweet note with an unexpected award (certificate, trophy, and $75 check)....  

Thank you Galveston Chamber of Commerce for making such a valuable program available to our little ones--and for recognizing her creative efforts.  

Until next year, she'll "spend a little, save a little, give a little back."
