Last Thursday, we first told you about 7-year-old entrepreneur Julie Murphy and how county health inspectors shut down her lemonade stand.

After their public image soured, elected officials apologized for shutting down Julie’s lemonade stand because she didn’t possess the proper permit.

According to The Oregonian, a local radio station and tire store set her up in business for an afternoon.

Now, she has $1,838.31 — enough to bankroll a trip to Disneyland for her mother and her later this month.

And if she wants it, there seems to be a lucrative career waiting for Julie in the lemonade business. A minor league baseball team has approached the seven-year-old about setting up shop at their games.
