2019 Lemon Nights
Lemon Nights is a new initiative that is a part of the Lemonade for Livy campaign.
The goal is to host a dinner during the main Lemonade for Livy timeframe of July 20th - 28th and to have your guests bring a donation instead of an appetizer or bottle of wine. If those dates don’t work for you, you are free to find an evening that does. The first 15 minutes are dedicated to talking about epilepsy and how you or a loved one has been impacted. Then it’s time to enjoy the rest of the evening. We will also broadcast our first 15 minutes on Facebook Live so you are free to tune in and use that as your 15 minutes. The funds all go to the Epilepsy Foundation of America to fund programs, services, and research. You can register your event at epilepsy.com/lemonadeforlivy.
We would be thrilled if a number of you would help in this effort and host a dinner. It could even be a less formal gathering such as a cocktail party. It can be a few people or 50 people. It can be at your home or at a restaurant. The choice is yours. All we ask is that you raise a glass, raise awareness, and raise funds to make a stand against epilepsy!
Here are some ideas of how you can participate:
- Host a dinner
- Host a cocktail party
- Invite local restaurants to join
About Lemonade for Livy
Lemonade for Livy is a campaign that spreads epilepsy awareness and raises funds to support programs, services, and research at the Epilepsy Foundation.
14-year-old Olivia Scheinman (Livy), of Clearwater, FL, is the inspiration and symbol behind Lemonade for Livy, a movement created by her family’s organization, Livy’s Hope. Since birth, Livy has been plagued by the damaging effects of epilepsy. She has endured multiple major brain surgeries but the seizures persist.
What started as one neighborhood lemonade stand to raise money in honor of Livy is expanding into a global initiative. It continues to grow because of Livy's twin sister Hailey and the special bond the girls share, a mother's love, and a father's promise made long ago.
