Lemonade Day

Lemonade Day’s Awesome Results! 


We are delighted to share that our 8 Lemonade Stands from all around Houston have brought in almost $3000!  This money was not only collected from the sale of lemonade, but also from our “Tips” jars.  Way to go!

“LEMONADE! LEMONADE for a dollar!”

On Sunday, May 2nd, I was fortunate enough to spend a few fun-filled hours making fresh lemonade and serving our guests at Kroger in Meyerland. The energy was unbelievable – our proud kids smiled, gave high-fives, and even offered free hugs!  It was an amazing venture. JJ and Thomas worked the cash register, Gwen and her brother Noah helped make signs, Sofia helped to fill cups with ice, and Imelda and Kacie helped pour lemonade. The Friends showed great teamwork.  We cheered the team on to help sell more lemonade. The lemonade stand was not just about raising money, but empowering Friends of Down Syndrome to run a business and work as a team. What a fantastic experience!”
