Raising money for child and adult survivors of domestic violence
June 29, 2022
INDIANAPOLIS – Coburn Place’s popular Lemonade Stand fundraiser raises money so the children in the program start the school year with brand-new shoes, new socks, new clothes and new uniforms. Proceeds from the Lemonade Stand also set them up for success, helping with art and school supplies, activities, field trip fees, movie passes for good grades, and much-needed mobile hot spots.
From 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Friday, July 15, visit a stand at one of two public locations for a glass of ice-cold lemonade to support the children of domestic violence survivors.
The Lemonade Stands will be at Coburn Place at 604 E. 38th St. and Christ Church Cathedral on Monument Circle. Charles Schwab is also hosting a Lemonade Stand for their employees. The Virtual Lemonade Stand is taking donations from July 1 through July 15 at www.coburnplace.org/lemons.
“Most of us remember how exciting it was to pick out new things for the school year, and we want these kids to have that experience, too,” says Coburn Place CEO Rachel Scott. “We’ve set an ambitious goal of $25,000 for their back-to-school needs, and we’re also looking forward to our ‘fundraiser for grown-ups’ that night.”
In conjunction with the Lemonade Stand, Merchants Bank of Indiana is presenting a Spiked Lemonade Stand on Friday, July 15, from 5 to 9 p.m. at Hotel Tango in Fletcher Place, 702 Virginia Ave., Indianapolis. For the first time, money raised goes directly to support the mental and physical wellness of domestic violence survivors. Coburn Place receives 20% of the bar sales for this event featuring specialty lemonade-inspired cocktails and mocktails.
This year’s expanded event includes live music by local artist J. Elliott, a jewelry sale by Pamela Clark Originals, food trucks and local vendors, a 50/50 cash raffle and more!
