May 7, 2017
The Galveston Regional Chamber of Commerce is proud to present the fifth annual Lemonade Day Galveston County on Sunday, May 7, 2017. On this day, more than 850 children from across Galveston County will become entrepreneurs by setting up lemonade stands. By May 7, these children will have been preparing for weeks by learning the lessons of owning and operating a business, such as setting goals, planning, budgeting, finding an investor, running their business and so much more.
Lemonade Day Galveston County, which is an initiative of the Galveston Regional Chamber’s Education Committee, empowers today’s youth to become tomorrow’s entrepreneurs. Youth of all ages – from pre-K through high school, across Galveston County can register to set up an official Lemonade Day stand. Upon registering, participants receive a backpack with an entrepreneur workbook that teaches the 14 lessons of Lemonade Day. Participants can register online at http://galveston.lemonadeday.org or visit the Galveston Regional Chamber of Commerce at 23rd Street and Mechanic in Downtown Galveston.
There are also numerous ways that local businesses can get involved. For instance, your company can donate money, mentor kids, serve as a site location and so much more. Just $100 can provide the supplies needed for 10 kids to participate in Lemonade Day Galveston County. If you are interested in helping, please contact the Galveston Regional Chamber of Commerce at (409) 763-5326 or connect with us at http://galveston.lemonadeday.org.
