MIDLAND COUNTY, MI (WNEM) -

A 10-year-old boy who runs a lemonade stand in Midland won a free bike.

The bike is through Barberi Law's Bikes for Kids program.

Easton Damude won the bike because he uses his lemonade stand to raise money for foster kids to attend summer camp.

Easton and his family went to Motorless Motion in downtown Mt. Pleasant on Thursday to pick out his bike.

Easton's said they started the lemonade stand so he could teach his kids the basic principles of business.

"The biggest thing I like about it is it is something we can do as a family," he said.

The stand, Sweet Sydney's Old Barn Lemonade Stand, is at the Midland Area Farmers Market and other events around the area.

The lemonade is based on donations. The family also has local businesses act as sponsors and they put their logos on the back of t-shirts they sell at the stand.

Last year the Damudes donated $3,000 to send foster kids to Mid-Michigan Royal Family Kids Camp.

Geoffrey Rettig, chief assistant prosecutor in Midland County, nominated Easton to win the bike. Easton is Rettig's paperboy.

"He is such a great kid," Rettig said. "I thought it would be neat if he won a bike. I didn't even tell him or his family that I nominated him."

The bike program will give four more bikes away this summer.
