ST. LOUIS (KMOX) - Ben's got the setup -- bendy straws of many colors, solo cups, fresh lemons and a legitimate lemonade dispenser. His table is on Portis, just off Arsenal, in the Tower Grove neighborhood. He's even wearing a yellow T-shirt.

In this heat, that's dedication.

But Ben's not in the summertime lemonade business to treat himself to some hard-earned cash. He plans to donate his profits to fund research to help find a cure for childhood cancer.

A Facebook post spotlighting the young entrepreneur has more than 8,500 reactions and nearly 4,000 shares.

“No babies should get cancer. It’s just not right,” Ben is quoted as saying in the social post.

It's safe to say he has some fans, a few of which commented with their plans to stop in the city for a fresh cup of lemonade.

Way to go, Ben!
