CRESTVIEW — The 2017 Little Miss Northwest Florida winner, a Crestview resident, has achieved her goal to help a children's assistance organization.
Kadance Fredericksen, 10, presented a total of $5,099.56 to the Ronald McDonald House in Pensacola.
She held a lemonade stand and online fundraiser where people could donate and purchase T-shirts and refreshments. She also received a matching grant from David Costa Enterprises, which owns McDonald's restaurants in Crestview and throughout the Southern U.S.
The Crestview youths had set a goal of $1,500 for the benefit.
The Ronald McDonald Houses function as homes for families near hospitals where children are in medical crisis.
