May 3, keep your eyes open for Lemonade stands across Aggieland. You shouldn’t have a hard time finding them as hundreds of area kids will take to the streets in a real life experiment in small business ownership. Candy 95 and WTAW have partnered with the organization again this year.
Lemonade Day was founded in Houston as a way of teaching kids about money, entrepreneurship, marketing, small business ownership and more. Children sign up and on Lemonade Day build a lemonade stand. They sell their lemonade and at the end of the day keep the money they earn.
“It’s one of our favorite events!,” said Candy/WTAW personality, Katy Dempsey, “The kids have to get funding for their stand, keep track of expenses, pay those expenses back and by doing that learn about business at a very young age. Besides that we all get some amazing lemonade!”
Candy 95 also sends personalities and their Street Team around town on Lemonade Day to buy as much of lemonade as they can. “Last year Frito and visited around 30 stands. That’s a lot of lemonade, and it’s also a lot of kids getting a great experience with their first small business,” Dempsey said.
