BELLEVILLE, Wis. (WMTV) -An 8-year-old girl will speak at President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration on Wednesday after raising over $50,000 for charity.

Morgan Mash-McGlone of Belleville started a virtual lemonade stand to raise money for Little John’s—a pay-what-you-can restaurant aimed at fighting food insecurity.

Morgan ended up raising $53,000 for the restaurant, according to Owner and Chef Dave Heide. Heide says Morgan will be introduced by Chef Jose Andres and will get to cue the next speaker, actor Tom Hanks.
