MERRILLVILLE | A Merrillville girl's annual fundraiser generated $5,413 for Riley Hospital for Children, organizers of the event said.
Hailey Perryman, 12, operated a Kool-Aid stand last week outside of Merrillville Fire Station No. 2 to collect donations for the Indianapolis pediatric facility.
Perryman has operated the fundraiser since 2008. Since then, she has collected about $27,000.
People who were unable to attend the fundraiser can send donations until July 31 to 7914 Wilson St., Merrillville, IN 46410. Checks should be made payable to Riley Children's Foundation.
