Raising money for child and adult survivors of domestic violence
June 28, 2023
INDIANAPOLIS – Coburn Place’s popular Lemonade Stand fundraiser raises money so the children in the program start the school year with brand-new shoes, socks, clothes and uniforms. Proceeds from the Lemonade Stand also set them up for success, helping with art and school supplies, activities, prom dresses, cleats, field trip fees, movie passes for good grades, and much more. This year’s goal is $25,000.
From 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Thursday, July 13, visit a stand at one of three 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., Christ Church Cathedral on Monument Circle, and Charles Schwab at 8332 Woodfield Crossing Lane. The Virtual Lemonade Stand is taking donations from now through July 13 at www.coburnplace.org/lemons.
“These kids are the heart of our mission because they play a part in breaking the cycle of abuse in their families,” says Coburn Place CEO Rachel Scott. “We want them to feel confident when they go back to school, and having brand-new shoes and clothes can be powerful. Most of us can relate to that.”
In conjunction with the Lemonade Stand, audiochuck 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. Money raised goes directly to support the mental and physical wellness of domestic violence survivors. Coburn Place receives 25% of the bar sales for this event featuring specialty lemonade-inspired cocktails and mocktails, live music by local artist Kelli Ray Yates, a jewelry sale by Pamela Clark Originals, food trucks and local vendors, a 50/50 cash raffle and more!
