Despite Setbacks, Lemonade Stand Proves Successful

Last updated on Tuesday, May 21, 2013

(INDIANAPOLIS) - What started as an unfortunate incident at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway turned out to be a positive one for one 10-year-old girl.

Morgan Morris had set up a lemonade stand at IMS for Lemonade Day on Saturday. But IMS officials forced her to shut it down, saying she didn't have permission to sell lemonade at the track, even though she did.

However, Morris says because of what happened, she ended up raising much more money than she expected. Morris says IMS is donating 500 dollars to the American Heart Association in her name.

James Newton from Newton Laws of Transportation in Indianapolis is donating 250 dollars. Another unnamed donor is giving 500 dollars as well.

Morris calls the experience a positive one. She says she only expected to raise about 100 dollars at the speedway. She says she has learned to be prepared for anything when it comes to business.
