What

Good Lemonade Day is taking place for the first time in 2022 with a goal of raising money for JoeAnna’s House.  Our vision is to have dozens (maybe one day hundreds!) of lemonade stands all across BC on the same day!

This fundraising event would not be possible without the generous support of our Title Sponsor, Laing Service and Maintenance, in partnership with Prestige Hotels and Resorts.

Why

Helping others feels good.

And selling lemonade is FUN! By being a part of our lemonade community, you will be providing help and support for families who are needing to travel and be away from home while their loved one receives hospital care. JoeAnna’s House is a home-away-from-home located in Kelowna, and provides accommodation for families of patients who require treatment at Kelowna General Hospital.

When

Good Lemonade Day stands will all take place on the same day: Saturday, June 18, 2022 at various times throughout the day.

Stands will be hosted anytime between 9am – 3pm and times of each stand will vary by location; some may only be open for a few hours within that timeframe.

Who

Families and individuals who would like to make a difference and help raise funds for JoeAnna’s House. Everybody in BC is welcome to sign up to host a booth!

Where

Good Lemonade Day stands will be held in communities all across British Columbia! This map indicates the addresses where Good Lemonade Day stands will be. They will be open between 9am – 3pm but times will vary by location and individual stand times cannot be guaranteed.

Every Prestige Hotels and Resorts location in BC will be hosting a lemonade stand between 10 am – 5pm (or as long as supplies last). Thank you for visiting the lemonade stand in your area that works best.

FAQ

Yes, due to the nature of this province-wide event and the marketing messaging behind it, we kindly ask that only host your Good Lemonade Day stand only on June 18, 2022. However, JoeAnna’s House accepts donations year-round so if you felt compelled to host additional lemonade stands or other fundraisers outside of the Good Lemonade Day event brand/date, they would always appreciate extra funds raised and would gladly accept your donation.

The event will proceed, rain or shine, on June 18. We also recommend you host your stand sometime between 9am – 3pm (it doesn’t have to be the entire time).

Yes, by all means, if you want to sell additional home-made items you are more than welcome to. We kindly require that all funds raised on the additional items also be donated to JoeAnna’s House.

Yes, as this is a fundraiser we have limited funds to supply all 100 families with large amounts of lemonade. We kindly ask you to purchase additional amount, at your cost, if you would like to sell more than what is provided. Thank you!

Yes absolutely! We encourage you to ask your friends, family, colleagues, teammates, or anybody to donate to the cause too, even if they can’t come by the lemonade stand in person. We will be providing all participants with a link to an online donation page; coming soon!

Due to the generous support of our two sponsors, Laing Service and Maintenance and Prestige Hotels and Resorts, 100% of the funds raised at the lemonade stands will go directly to JoeAnna’s House.

In addition to what we supply in the starter pack, please be prepared to provide your own water to make the lemonade, pitcher(s) for the lemonade, cups, ice, a table(s) and a float for change.

Yes, we would be happy to order your family/group extra t-shirts at a cost of $15 each if the two we are providing are not enough. Please complete that question accordingly on the registration form.

We are recommending that you charge at least $1 per cup of lemonade, but of course people are welcome to donate more if they’d like to.

Yes, the Kelowna General Hospital Foundation is pleased to issue tax receipts to anyone who donates more than $20. Note: the donations must be made on the donation website in order to qualify for a tax receipt. In-person donations made at the stand are not eligible.

At the end of the Good Lemonade Day, please complete the survey form that will be emailed out to you and let us know how it went!!  Our goal is that you had a great time helping out your community.  Please let us know how much you were able to raise and we will review how to submit your total fundraising dollars.  There will be several methods, such as:

  • Deposit the money into your personal bank account and then make a lump sum payment on your stand’s donation page.
  • Deposit the money into your personal bank account and then send an e-transfer to [email protected].
  • Deposit the money into your personal bank account and then mail a cheque to 5165 Lark Street Kelowna, BC V1W 4K9. Cheques should be made out to “Good Lemonade Day”
