Four little girls who were robbed by four older boys while selling lemonade to raise money for a local charity in Pontiac, Mich. have been recognized by local officials for their good deeds.
Word quickly spread nationwide about the robbery of $40 that occurred on July 18. The Detroit News reported that local police have made three arrests in the case.
Last week, Oakland County commissioners honored the foursome for their hard work and good deeds. Corrine and Savannah Aldrich, both 9; Aleyce Guerra, 6; and Serena Inglsbee, 9, sold 40 gallons of lemonade at their new stand July 31 to make $350.
"We didn't give up just because we got robbed," Corrine Aldrich said.
"I just wanted them to show that when you do something good people recognize it. They certainly deserve it," said Aldrich's father, Keith.
"Well, when one bad thing happens to you just forget about it, let it go and just do it again," Savannah, Corrine's sister, said.
We wanted them to learn because of something bad, let's turn this into a good thing," the girls' father added.
The girls donated all of the money to a local charity.
