GREAT FALLS – Great Falls’ Kennedy Ross continues efforts to raise funds for the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
Great Falls Girl raises money for the Make-A-Wish Foundation
For the past four years, nine-year-old Kennedy has spent time selling lemonade at a stall outside her house every summer.
It opened at 10 a.m. on Saturday and will be open until 2 p.m. at the intersection of James Avenue and 5th Street NW in the Riverview neighborhood.
Her first clients included members of the Great Falls Central Catholic High School football team.
You can recognize her last name – she is the sister of Troy Ross, who was diagnosed with a rare disease in 2017.
In 2019, Make-A-Wish Montana sent the Ross family to Disney World, and since then Kennedy has donated all of their soda proceeds to Make-A-Wish.
Kennedy said the lemonade was their way of helping people Make-A-Wish Foundation because the foundation has done so much for her family.
“I feel so good inside that I can help (make-a-wish patients),” said Kennedy. “I’m going to have to build a new lemonade stand. It was built from an old fence.”
The congregation has gathered around Troy, and for the past four years the American Red Cross has been hosting a nationwide blood donation campaign to his credit.
