Stony Brook siblings host sixth annual Three Village Kids Lemonade Stand
By Amanda Perelli
What was once a simple lemonade stand in front of a Stony Brook house, has turned into a sweet community-driven event raising thousands each year.
The sixth annual Three Village Kids Lemonade Stand was back at R.C. Murphy Junior High School for the second year on Aug. 8. The event was cofounded by siblings Maddie and Joseph Mastriano with help from dozens of student volunteers from the Three Village Central School District.
Fifty-cent cups of lemonade were poured by young student volunteers and kids played games with athletes from Stony Brook University teams. Sales from the lemonade stand benefit Stony Brook Children’s hospital. At the event, nearly $20,000 was raised toward a goal of $30,000 and donations were still coming in after Aug. 8.
