For St. Pattie's Day

Symsonia lad sells Leprechaun Juice 3/17

What started out as a normal afternoon snack of cheese and crackers for 7-year-old Cayden Goodman of Symsonia has turned into a community fundraiser to benefit cancer patients. He stumbled into selling family and friends crackers with a cancer awareness ribbon made of “Easy Cheese.” Earning $8 in less than 30 minutes made him realize he could open a lemonade stand. His grandmother, aunt, great-grandfather and a close family friend all recently battled the disease. “I believe his awareness of cancer in our family coupled with the fact that his first grade class at Symsonia Elementary School is raising funds for Relay for Life is what inspired him to raise money for this wonderful cause,” said his mother, Joni Goodman. His interest in leprechauns has led him to sell lemonade on St. Patrick’s Day as “Leprechaun Juice.” So, Cayden and friends he recruited will raise cash for the American Cancer Society and the family of a local woman diagnosed with terminal cancer. The stand will be stationed at Slabtown Restaurant at the Symsonia four-way stop, the intersection of Kentucky highways 131 and 348. It opens at 11 a.m. Saturday, March 17, and run until 2 p.m. or until the Leprechaun Juice sells out.
