Would You Spend $1,000 on a Glass of ‘Cool-Aid?’
That was the asking price for one Lakewood man who set up a table on his parents’ front lawn to raise money for his medical bills.
A 43-year-old Lakewood man spent Sunday afternoon selling “Cool-Aid” from the front yard of his parents Manor Park Avenue home.
But he was charging $1,000 per cup.
Tobin Northrup needs some help paying his medical bills, stemming from a few bouts with pancreatitis, reported Fox 8.
So he set up what he called a "Cool-Aid" stand.
He didn’t have any takers, but some neighbors bargained down to a couple of bucks — despite his buy-one, get-one-free campaign.
Northrup told Fox 8 that he’d have to sell about 38 cups at full price to pay off his medical bills.
Although times are tough for lots of folks, we thought we’d ask anyway: Would you pay $1,000 for a cup of “Cool-Aid?”
