, a charity that Jessica Seinfeld
founded, but the endeavor was halted after someone called the cops to report illegally parked cars, who had stopped to purchase a refreshing glass of lemonade.

Although the pop-up East Hampton fundraiser is now over, Jessica thanked patrons on her Instagram page, posting a picture of the stand's volunteers getting "arrested" with the caption of, "Lemonade dreams crushed by local neighbor but not before raising lots of money for @loverecycled. Thanks to all of our customers and big tippers!"
