Not only can you support their efforts by purchasing their lemonade and admiring their stands, you will be helping them to understand the rewards of owning their own business. The kids, and their families, have spent hours mixing up special lemonade recipes, designing and building their stands, as well as working on their budget and other aspects of business ownership.
Many of the children donate a portion of their earnings to local non-profits like Relay for Life, HELP animal shelter, Boys and Girls Club, and many others. So by supporting them, you are supporting non-profits in our community.
To enter the Best Tasting & Best Stand contests, you must be registered for Lemonade Day. (registrations will be available that day if you haven’t signed up yet, or sign up at your child’s school, First Bank Richmond branches, or local libraries). All contestants will be entered into a drawing for a Kindle Fire HD & a Veach’s gift card. 1st & 2nd places in both categories will receive a trophy. Set up begins at 10:00 a.m. and judging will begin at 11:15 a.m. (Celebrity judges will vote for their favorite lemonade and stand).
Contestants are encouraged to stay and sell lemonade as long as they are able, while they enjoy the Taste of Italy.
