BBBS The Big Squeeze – sign up to compete by July 18

Posted in: Auditions/Call for Vendors/Volunteers/Submissions, Entertainment NEWS, News | No Comments | Posted on by Mary Anne

Big Brothers Big Sisters invite Businesses and Organizations across Sarnia-Lambton to join in on this city-wide Lemonade Stand Competition from 10:00am-2:00pm on Wednesday, August 21st, 2019!

This is a brand new event for us & we are hoping to get as many businesses in the area involved as possible to celebrate & support youth mentoring! This will be a FUN event that will promote TEAM BUILDING and a little friendly competition.

All lemonade stands participating offer their lemonade by donation, and some may choose to also include additional draws such as treats, baked goods or a BBQ!

All proceeds from The Big Squeeze stay right here in Sarnia-Lambton to support our
agency’s proactive mentoring programs!

The Rules:
• Big Brothers Big Sisters will provide your team with lemons and pitchers (if
required) the Monday before the event. Teams can add anything (non-alcoholic) to
their lemonade.
• The agency will promote all locations (which can be indoors or outdoors) that
lemonade will be available. You can do additional promotions for your team; it’s
encouraged! Let us know if you will be participating by July 18th for full promotion!
• Teams can raise additional funds at their stand by collecting donations, having a
bake sale, BBQ or anything else that is legal and your imagination can come up with. These additional fundraising efforts will go towards your total.
• The Big Brothers Big Sisters team will be acting as judges and will be coming to
each lemonade stand during the sale period to do a taste test. These judges will
award the Best Tasting Lemonade trophy at the end of the day. Points will be
awarded for taste and appearance. There will also be a trophy for top fundraising
lemonade stand! During these visits the BBBS team will be doing Facebook lives from each location!
• Staff members from Big Brothers Big Sisters will be at your location between
2:00pm-3:00pm to pick up the money raised and any remaining supplies.

How to Register a Team: Contact BBBS summer students, Kaiden, Abigail or Morgan at 519 336 0460 x 302 or by email at

This is an event we have watched take off in other BBBS communities and we are proud to be able to bring it to ours! We hope your staff will consider taking part in this TEAM BUILDING event all while supporting MENTORING in our community!
