Windsor Essex Care for Kids Foundation Announces Lemonade Brigade Kick Off

The Windsor Essex Care for Kids Foundation (W.E. Care for Kids), a leader in fundraising for local pediatric health care, announced their 2nd annual fundraising initiative, the “W.E. Care for Kids Lemonade Brigade.”

President of W.E. Care for Kids Mike Brain and an ambitious group of young fundraisers, Avery, Jaxon, Orianna, Alexis, Brennan and Travis kicked off this year’s W.E. Care for Kids fundraising initiative the “Lemonade Brigade.” This group has been fundraising for W.E. Care for Kids by setting up lemonade stands for the last four years and have raised over $20,000 in that time. Last year, W.E. Care for Kids announced a new fundraising initiative the “W.E. Care for Kids Lemonade Brigade” and inspired kids all over Windsor-Essex County to set up their own “Lemonade Stand” and raise money for local pediatric healthcare.

Over a hundred kids joined the “Lemonade Brigade” by setting up their own “Lemonade Stand” in their neighborhood and together have raised over $18,500 in support of local pediatric healthcare! Each child who signs up to join the “Lemonade Brigade” will receive a starter kit with everything needed to get their lemonade stand started. W.E. Care for Kids is always looking for new members to join the “Lemonade Brigade” team! The top three stands that raise the most at the end of the summer will have chance to win amazing prizes generously donated by local businesses.

W.E. Care for Kids is dedicated to enhancing the health and wellness of children in Windsor and Essex County through fundraising initiatives. Since 1997, W.E. Care for Kids has raised more $7.2 million in support of equipment for pediatric programs and services at local hospitals, as well as the John McGivney Children’s Centre and Windsor Essex Therapeutic Riding Association. 

Kick off happens Tuesday May 15th, 10:00 A.M. at Windsor Regional Hospital, Met Campus, main lobby.
