Local young girls to raise money for a good cause

Bossier City, LA (KSLA)- Many people around the Ark-La-Tex will likely be off for Memorial Day on Monday. But for a couple of two young girls, working for a very good cause will be crucial to someone else's survival.

Jillian and Victoria are two four year-old best friends who will be busy setting up a lemonade stand to help raise money for Victoria's ill baby cousin.

Victoria's two year-old cousin "Alyssa" is in desperate need for a rare kind of bone marrow transplant that costs hundreds of thousands of dollars.

To help support their good cause, the girls will be working their lemonade stand on Monday from 11 am till 3 PM. The lemonade stand is located at 4100 Barksdale Boulevard in the Johnny's Pizza parking lot. The girls will be charging fifty cents per cup for their delicious lemonade.
