It is free to participate! McAllen Lemonade Day

Next Backpack Pickup Day Scheduled for April 20th!
 
Dear Jose A. 
 
As you know, Lemonade Day is a FREE community-wide educational program that teaches youth the necessary entrepreneurial skills to start, own, and operate their own business – a lemonade stand. Our event is scheduled for May 13, 2017. 
 
Registered participants need to attend to one of the two backpack pickup dates left to pick up materials and choose a location from which they will operate.
 
If you have not registered yet to participate click here.
 
At backpack pickup day you will receive the official backpack and materials that will help you launch your business. Also, you will get to select the location from where you are going to operate. Last but not least, you will get your permit in order to operate. Back pack pickup dates are scheduled from 4:30pm to 6:30 pm at the McAllen Chamber of Commerce on:
  • April 20, 2017
  • May 2, 2017
Reminder: No baked goods should be sold.
 
How can a business participate?
  1. Provide a prize for “The Entrepreneur of the Year”. The Entrepreneur of the Year is a prize that will be granted to the stand that collects the most revenue! We will create a basquet of cool prices donated by y’all. This is a simple and easy way to promote your business.
  2. Offer your business as a location. This is another way you can drag attention to your business. If you are in McAllen, and have restrooms available from 10 am to 4 pm, you pretty much qualify to host a location.                                                                                           
  3. Encourage Your Employees to Register Their Children. Businesses can have a lot of fun with the program by running internal contests with their employees or by simply creating a healthy sense of community involvement. We can even provide template emails for you to send to your employees.                                                                                                     
There is no cost to participate! Contact us to discuss how would be the best way to get you involved. 
 
If you would like to volunteer or drag attention to your business by providing a location for lemonade stands, please do not hesitate to contact Jorge Sanchez at 956-682-2871 or jsanchez@mcallenchamber.com
