Gibson announces Lemonade Day Lubbock Thursday

From Lubbock Chamber of Commerce:

Due to popular demand, Lemonade Day is coming back to the Hub City on May 4th and you are invited to share in the fun!

Kicking off this year's event is a ribbon cutting ceremony at the Lubbock Chamber of Commerce located in the Wells Fargo Center, 1500 Broadway. The event takes place this Thursday, March 21st at 4:00 p.m. Mayor Pro Tem Karen Gibson will be issuing the City Proclamation recognizing the amazing impact Lemonade Day Lubbock accomplished last year and welcoming the event back for 2013. Volunteers will be on hand to register youth.

Lemonade Day Lubbock is empowering today's youth to become tomorrow's entrepreneurs by teaching them to start, own and operate their very own business – a lemonade stand. Last year, over 3,000 area youths registered and learned how to start their own business.

Each child that registers receives a backpack with an Entrepreneur Workbook that teaches them the 14 lessons of Lemonade Day - including how to set goals, make a budget and a plan, create a product, work hard and provide good customer service, make a profit and give back to the community. Children keep all the money they earn and are encouraged to spend some, save some, and share some. Thousands of dollars were donated back to local Lubbock charities last year.

Registration is available online so register today at: http://lubbock.lemonadeday.org/national-registration-form/

Lemonade Day Lubbock will be May 4th and our goal is to register 3,500 youth who in turn start 500 new businesses all across Lubbock - on a single day. Learn more at http://lubbock.lemonadeday.org/ and like us on Facebook at: http://www.facebook.com/LubbockLemonadeDay.
