THE ORIGINAL LEMON-AID ... WITH A TWIST
IT ALL STARTED WITH AN IDEA
Lemon-Aid is a Labor Day Weekend city-wide fundraiser originally held from 1994 to 2000, where kids across Tulsa, Oklahoma donated their time to sell lemonade and all money raised went directly to benefit the children and families at the Tulsa Day Center for the Homeless. Over the course of seven Labor Day Weekends, with the help of more than 10,000 youth volunteers, Lemon-Aid raised more than $350,000.
25 YEARS LATER: FRUITION
While Lemon-Aid has continued to live in the hearts and minds of Tulsans of all ages since its inception in 1994, the actual fundraising efforts of the traditional Labor Day festivities took an extended pause... until now. The founder and chair, who created the original Lemon-Aid at age 10 with her sisters and brother, had to grow up.
But now that she has her own business and a growing family of her own, it is time to bring the tradition back to Tulsa – and the world – with a twist.
