Two Addison Mizner Elementary School fourth-graders have set up a hot chocolate stand in front of Rick Newman’s holiday sound and light show in Old Floresta. They even do curbside service.
The “Hot Chocolate Girls” are pals Lauren Wulf, 10, and Rachel Englander, 10. Rachel lives in the neighborhood and has done this sort of thing before. “She’s very entrepreneurial,” her mother Linda Englander said.
Rachel knew there would be foot traffic for Rick Newman’s annual holiday show, on view from 6 p.m. to 2 a.m. through Jan. 2 at 699 NW Ninth Ave. But when they found out there was a Make-A-Wish donation box, the girls decided to hand over their profits. Thanksgiving weekend alone they collected about $46.
“It makes the children happy and they get their wish,” Rachel said.
