This past Saturday, October 6, the McConnell Marketing team headed to Alliance, Ohio and joined Raider Relief and the Regula Center to participate in Lemonpalooza, a community-wide lemonade sale.
From 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., lemonade stands were set up in front of various businesses along State Street in Alliance. The lemonade was sold for $1 per glass.
Marilyn Miller, Raider Relief member and Lemonpalooza location leader said, “Lemonpalooza is not your average fundraiser. It’s taking a classic childhood pastime and engaging students and the community to help a great cause.”
Raider Relief is a student-driven organization at the University of Mount Union that recognizes the needs of people less fortunate, and helps those in need with passion, love and good deeds.
The Ralph and Mary Regula Center for Public Service and Civic Engagement was created to support Mount Union’s mission to prepare students for fulfilling lives, meaningful work and responsible citizenship by being a place where members of the campus and wider community can work collaboratively in service of the greater good.
Great job, team! And a special thanks to Calvin, Olivia and Brennan for helping out, too!
