Sunflower fest in Merrill benefits St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital

More than 500 people made their way to Helene’s Hilltop Orchard in Lincoln County for their first sunflower fest on Saturday.

The fest raised money for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

The $10 entry fee came with a bouquet of sunflowers for everyone to take home.

The owner of the orchard said she is thankful to be a part of a giving community.

"This is the first time we have done any type of donation event and I just feel happy that people find the passion in their heart to be able to give to St. Judes," said Olivia Telschow.

Telschow said she did not have a fund raising goal in mind but feels grateful to have such a big turnout.

Festivities carry though till Sunday,
