Lemonade for Love is a lemonade stand with a super-sweet twist! It is a child-driven, parent-supported fundraising event that is all about kids helping kids.
Lemonade for Love began in 2012 as a small lemonade stand on a front yard in Etobicoke. It is now a well-attended community event that happens each June at Fairfield Park in Etobicoke.
Take what you want, give what you can, is the spirit of our event. The approach has worked! To date, and with the help of our community sponsors and generous donations of our attendees, we have raised and reinvested over $100,000.00 back into our local community.
Each year we raise money to support the #CaptainXavierFund at Silver Creek Preschool for children with special needs in Etobicoke. The fund is named after a boy in our community who attended Silver Creek during his pre-school years.
WHERE THE MONEY WE RAISE GOES
The #CaptainXavierFund provides scholarships to help families send their children to Silver Creek Preschool. \n\nOur fundraising efforts have surpassed our expectations; therefore, we are excited to expand the fund’s mandate to include two additional areas of support:
1) The fund will now be available to offer support to families at Silver Creek who may need assistance with the cost of medical devices, equipment, and/or aids. These items may include but are not limited to, ankle-foot orthosis (AFOs), prescriptive glasses, and adaptive equipment.
2) We are excited to support Silver Creek in its efforts to create a new satellite location to eradicate its extensive waitlist and expand into a primary school.
Silver Creek provides a positive pre-school setting with therapeutic services delivered within a caring and creative early education classroom. The school is dedicated to working with families, the community, and other professionals to ensure that the unique promise of each child is realized. We are proud to support the school, its staff, and most importantly, their families and children.
