(BLOOMINGTON) - Lemonade Day is a fun, experiential program that teaches youth in K-5th grade the math, business and financial skills needed to start, own and operate their very own business - a lemonade stand.

College Mall will be hosting local youth selling lemonade on May 20 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.in Center Court by Target.

For Lemonade Day, local children will create a business plan, set a budget and financial goals, and calculate expenses, sales, profit and more. Children experience the feeling of earning real money, using 100 percent of their profit to spend, save and share based on their own goals. Support the participants by buying their lemonade on May 20.

"Hosting a Lemonade Day is a unique and fun way to teach children skills that will stay with them the rest of their lives," said David Dawson, director of marketing and business development at College Mall. "We hope we can teach the children in Bloomington something valuable about business with this great family-friendly event."

To register for College Mall's Lemonade Day, taking place May 20, visit https://lemonadeday.org. It is free to children to register and participate, and all money raised can be used as they see fit to meet their goals.
