Gabriella Cooperman, 13, of Highland Park, has a younger sister with special needs who has benefitted greatly from Equestrian Connection’s program. Gabriella wanted to help other kids like her sister enjoy those services too. So she started a lemonade stand when she was 5 to raise money.
Twenty-five thousand dollars, 8 years, and 14 corporate sponsors later, Gabriella and her stand are a beloved fixture near Ravinia’s entrance. Now she sells her mom’s special cookies there too.
