Chloe's Lemon-aid Stand for Education is back!

A time-old tradition of children making money in the summer with a lemonade stand took on a whole new meaning in Cashiers in the summer of 2015. Summit Charter School student, Chloe Crawford (then age 9), wanted to do something to help her school and decided to start selling lemonade for $1 a glass at her family’s business - the Cashiers Farmers Market. She aptly named her fundraiser "Chloe's Lemon-aid Stand for Education" and recruited classmates to take a turn operating the stand in July and August before school started. As word spread of the fundraiser, residents and businesses began matching the daily number of glasses sold. The lemonade stand raised $44,567 for Summit. This amount was matched and the stand ended up netting $100,000 for Summit in 2015. Word got out about our little school as the stand was featured on WLOS and Fox & Friends. The Lemon-aid Stand for Education returned for another year and over 80% of our children worked the stand and numerous parents volunteered their time to help as well. With the combined 2015 and 2016 summer seasons, the stand raised enough funds to fuel the dream of a high school, gym and performing arts center. Each facility is complete or underway and now we are tasked with raising critical operating funds to maintain the buildings and sustain the unique educational and extracurricular programs Summit offers. Enter the return of Chloe's Lemon-aid Stand!

Will you join us by supporting the Lemon-Aid Stand today?

Just like before, Chloe is asking for help from the community in two ways: First, she wants corporate or individual sponsors to match her sales for each day before school starts. Interested businesses can commit to a specific match on this website or stop by the lemonade stand at the Farmers Market to submit a pledge. Daily revenue may range from $250 - $5,000. Each sponsorship level with benefits is outlined in the below chart. Secondly, Chloe wants as many people as possible to visit the stand and buy lemonade! It's still refreshing, delicious and only $1 a glass. Come see us June 13 - August 18 at the Farmers Market on Thursday, Friday and Saturday 11:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.
