This was Reese’s very first time to participate in Lemonade Day! And she threw herself into the experience WHOLE heartedly, even sending a letter to President Obama (pic-tured right) to invite him to her stand! Her motivation was to be able to raise at least $315 to buy all of the oncology patients in the local children’s hospital Build-A-Bears. Reese’s stand had THREE areas filled with different items. Table one was her lemonade and pink lem-onade stand. Table two had limeade. Table three had all the sweets;cupcakes, cookies and popcorn. The stand was located directly in the center of the neighborhood park.
Reese didn’t leave anything to chance! From studying her lessons,she knew marketing was key! So Reese had business owners share pictures of her stand information on social media. Next, she posted fly-ers around their neighborhood and used the neighborhoods app to post the event. Reese was chosen to be the Coastal Bend Mamas cute pic of the week in her lemonade stand photo, which helped her advertise. She also took invitations to school, AND mailed out friend and family invitations! She worked very hard and had a lot of fun!The best part was...Reese EXCEEDED her goal and raised a total of$590 dollars, allowing her to buy the Build-A-Bears for the kids at the children’s hospital!
