Lemonade Days in Riverfront Park




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.
