Two little girls and 60 gallons of lemonade went a long way to providing help for America’s wounded military personnel.

Jadyn and Kalyn Horst of Omaha raised $3,500 Sunday — including a $1,000 donation from an anonymous donor for Wounded Warriors Family Support and Moving Veterans Forward. Their lemonade stand and sales by food vendors fell short of last year’s record of $4,300.

The girls’ efforts were aided by Voodoo Taco, Over Easy restaurant, the Cornhusker Corvette Club and Crossfit of Elkhorn during the fundraiser, which was outside Black Elk Elementary School near 161st and Harrison Streets.
