TUPELO- Eight-year-old Ryleigh Wright of Tupelo, with help from Todd's Big Star, will host an Alex's Lemonade Stand Saturday to raise funds for research into childhood cancer. 

From 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Todd's on West Main Street in Tupelo, Wright will sell lemonade and tickets for a raffle of more than $400 in gift cards donated by local businesses and restaurants. 

Todd's donated all the supplies for the lemonade so all proceeds will go to pediatric cancer research. In this region, Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation directs the funds to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital in Memphis.
