Keiki Sell Lemonade At Pearlridge

Lemonade Alley will return to Pearlridge Center’s parking lot fronting Toys ‘R’ Us from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday (April 11) with teams of kids selling their homemade lemonade to benefit local charities of their choice.

Team registration closed March 31, but the public is invited to head down and sample some delicious lemonade made by Hawaii’s keiki.

Teams worked to create the tastiest glass of lemonade, but also focused on designing and building their stands, pitching their businesses and understanding the world of sales.

The winning team in each division also walks home with a $1,000 cash prize.

Last year, teams donated more than $15,000 to organizations in need. According to the Alley, nonprofits registered to date include Alzheimer’s Disease and Related Disorders Association, American Youth Soccer Organization, BizGym Foundation, Easter Seals Hawaii, Hawaii Children’s Cancer Foundation, Hawaii Literacy and more.

Lemonade Alley is a program of nonprofit BizGym Foundation, and the friendly competition, now in its fifth year, aims to teach children “business, financial literacy and phil-anthropic skills.”
