Above, Peyton Estochin, 6, of Christy Park helps McKeesport Mayor Michael Cherepko press the button to light the city's Christmas tree in Kennedy Park, Downtown, on Wednesday night.
Estochin, a student at Praise Christian Academy in North Versailles Twp., opened a sweet tea stand in her neighborhood in August and raised $700 to support the McKeesport police K-9 unit, which includes four canines and their handler/officers.
Estochin has hopes of being a police officer and K-9 handler some day.
