A young Tulsa girl is turning lemons into lemonade for victims of Hurricane Katrina.

Saturday is Catherine Oliva's birthday. Instead of having a party and presents, she invited her friends to help run a lemonade stand to raise money for hurricane relief.

Catherine says it's different from other birthdays she's had and a lot more work, but she says it's all worth it. "This time I wanted to give instead of get and God wants us to do that."

Catherine and friends are set up at the Wal-Mart at 91st and Delaware.
