A Fort Worth group known as the "lemonAid kids" will put their fundraising powers to work for veterans.

The group Colonial Kids for a Cause raises money, in part, by selling lemonade. These philanthropic kids have convened during the annual golf tournament at Colonial Country Club for more than 16 years to support the work of others.

The kid-run nonprofit got together recently to hear pitches from several groups and chose the Fort Worth-based American Warrior Association as its next recipient.

The national organization helps military veterans, first responders and their families stressed by high-risk careers reconnect and continue to serve their communities. The program works through the pillars of mind, body and soul to help them live a life of purpose.
