On Saturday, May 17 Lemonade Day will be happening across greater Indianapolis and as a sponsor for the event, Carmel City Center will be one of the many locations where young entrepreneurs will have their stands set up around the project! Children that will have a stand located at Carmel City Center will have their lemonade stands up from 1-3 p.m.
If your child is interested in setting up a stand at Carmel City Center, we are able to accommodate 5 lemonade stands. Please contact Caitlin Parten at 317-705-7985 to secure one of these spots.
About Lemonade Day
In late 2009, Houston entrepreneur and native Hoosier Michael Holthouse asked local entrepreneur Scott Jones (www.scottajones.com) to bring this great program that he founded – Lemonade Day — to the Indianapolis area. This unique program teaches kids how to start, own and operate their own business: a lemonade stand. Kids viscerally learn about entrepreneurship, financial literacy, philanthropy and much more. Scott agreed without hesitation to spearhead Lemonade Day in Indianapolis and started a new foundation – The Think Forward Foundation – to do it. It was a huge commitment but he didn’t hesitate. Here’s why…
Today fewer and fewer kids are engaging in entrepreneurial activities like mowing lawns or starting lemonade stands. And yet many entrepreneurs talk about their early childhood experiences starting lemonade stands, or selling golf balls to empty-handed golfers, as the moment when the “light bulb went off.” The moment when they knew they could control their own destinies and possibly even change the world with their ideas. A lemonade stand did that for Scott, and he wants other kids to have that “light bulb” moment.
