While you are out enjoying your weekend make sure to stop by the Plaza in Riverfront Park on Sunday. Something special is happening and it is going to benefit a great cause.
This Sunday, June 03, from 9:00 until 2:30 a lemonade stand as part of Lemonade Days will be serving up refreshing lemonade drinks in the plaza of Riverfront Park. Lemonade Days is a fun, experiential learning program that teaches youth how to start, own and operate their own business – a lemonade stand. It began in Houston, Texas in 2007. Since then it has grown from 2,700 kids to 120,000 kids in 31 cities across America and Canada in 2011 – including Denver! The foremost objective of Lemonade Day is to empower youth to take ownership of their lives and become productive members of society – the business leaders, social advocates, volunteers, and forward thinking citizens of tomorrow.
Our Riverfront Park Lemonade Stand will be manned by the mile hi kids and Denver’s Fresh Start, a non profit working to help families and children. Fresh Start Denver is focusing in a number of family programs in the Denver Sun Valley Neighborhood. Social Media Agency Urban Brain Creative has come up with a pretty great campaign to help the Fresh Start Kids.
It’s a Facebook contest that helps the kids and may just win you a $100 McLoughlin’s gift card. All you need to enter the McLoughlin’s Sweepstakes is be a Facebook Fan of Fresh Start. And your fan participation on their page helps to earn donations for these great young entrepreneurs.
At 100 Facebook Fans each child receives a grocery gift card
at 500 Facebook Fans each child also receives a school supply packet
At 1000 Facebook Fans each child also receives an art supply packet
And if we can get them up to 2500 Facebook Fans the children will get a Rockies Game too.
Let’s help Fresh Start Denver reach their goal and help these kids with donations that support healthy, academics, art and fun. It costs nothing and as a fan you can enter to win $100 at our favorite Riverfront Park pub.
