Five years ago, 9 year old Oakville Resident Jack began selling lemonade on his driveway to raise money for the hospital for sick children in Toronto. Jack, a former patient himself underwent a number of brain procedures to correct his epileptic seizers and wanted to help others now that he is better.
What began as a small event on his driveway has now become an annual fundraising event with live music, activities, game stations and even a petting zoo attracting thousands of area people.
To date, Jack’s Lemonade had raised a quarter of a million dollars.
Last weekend Jack was presented, The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Medal for his charity work.
An inspirational story that has had a huge impact on the local community and across the country.
Congratulation’s again to Jack, his family and all the organizers for all their hard work!
