Lemonade Day McAllen takes place May 16, and organizers are currently seeking sponsors and McAllen businesses to provide safe stand locations.
This event is a community-wide educational program. The process teaches youth the entrepreneurial skills necessary to start, own and operate their own business — a lemonade stand. Additionally, everyone in the community may participate.
Lemonade Day takes place form 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. Participating businesses must be open during those hours and be able to provide a restroom to the participants. Each location needs to host at least two stands. The young entrepreneurs will take care of the rest, they will set up their stand and promote their lemonade.
Businesses that cannot participate as a location but would like to help can also provide gifts as a prize to the “Entrepreneur of the Year.”
