CORPUS CHRISTI - This Saturday, May 10th, lemonade stands will be set up across the Coastal Bend. The entrepreneurs behind the stands will be offering thirsty residents a chance to quench their thirst and support a business initiative taken by kids.
Lemonade Day is a nationwide event designed to teach children the joys of running a business, through the experience of setting up and managing a lemonade stand. It is sponsored locally, in part, by the Corpus Christi Chamber of Commerce. Each participant will set their own hours of operation, as well as the price for a cup of lemonade. At the end of the day, each child will then decide what to do with their profits. Most will be donating what they earn to a charity.
For a list of where the lemonade stands will be operating in Corpus Christi, as well as an interactive map that will highlight who is behind the stand and which charity they plan to support, go to www.corpuschristi.lemonadeday.org and click on "Stand Locations" at the top of the page.
