Lemonade Day is a community-wide educational program that provides youth with the opportunity to learn how to start, own and operate their first business…a lemonade stand. Youth are provided with free educational materials through the generous support of HEB. They are taught, with the help of a parent, teacher, or mentor, how to set goals, create a product, prepare a budget, seek an investor, choose a location, design a marketing plan, and provide customer service. On Lemonade Day, the young entrepreneurs open for business in public locations throughout the city. They keep the money they earn and are encouraged to spend some, save some for the future, and share some by giving to a local charity of their choice.
Paddle for #Hope is an annual event to raise awareness of missing children in Austin and to celebrate #Hope. Participants will enjoy a free day of paddling with friends and activities in the Kidz Zone. Clicky, the safety robot, will make an appearance for photo ops. Child/children with most raised funds will win a $100 gift certificate to a local toy store.
