LouVino owners Chad and Lauren Coulter launch local chapter of children’s non-profit entrepreneur program
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (Jan. 11, 2017) – Lemonade Day is a free, fun, experiential learning program that teaches kids how to start, own and operate their very own business – a lemonade stand. Founded in 2007, Lemonade Day has spread to more than 57 cities in 23 states and three countries. Lauren and Chad Coulter, owners of Louisville’s dining hotspot LouVino, are proud to announce that Louisville kids will get to join in on the fun this spring. Lemonade Day Louisville, presented by River City Bank (member FDIC), will be held Saturday, April 29. With the support of city champion Jan Helson, director of Global Game Changers, Lemonade Day Louisville’s goal is to register 500 youth who in turn will start new businesses all across Louisville – on a single day. A kickoff celebration is planned for Wednesday, March 1—details to come! For more information, visit louisville.lemonadeday.

Each child that registers will receive a free backpack with an entrepreneur workbook that teaches them the valuable lessons of Lemonade Day, including how to set a goal, make a plan, work the plan and achieve their dreams. Once a youth pays their investor back, they keep all of the money they earn and are encouraged to spend some, save some, and share some of their profit. Once a child is registered, they will be able to pick up their backpack and materials at a Louisville-area River City Bank. Additionally, River City Bank is offering a $5 incentive to any child who goes through the Lemonade Day Louisville program and opens a savings account at one of their branches.
Anyone and everyone can be involved in Lemonade Day Louisville! Young entrepreneurs with lemonade stands need mentors, investors, business partners, great locations, and customers. Sponsors and volunteers are also needed to make Lemonade Day a success.
