Who are EPic Lemonade?


Epic Lemonade is an organization that brings communities together to support those in need when in crisis. We dream big and prove how resilient we can be, when we work together.

Our community was devastated by a mass shooting AND wildfires in the same 24 hour period. As a community of mothers and kids, we felt helpless and used our enforced time off school to create a way to help those directly affected.

We decided to get the kids baking and making lemonade for a stand, and at the time joked about making it really epic. To reach as many people as possible, we rallied our friends and soon the idea grew way beyond our circle, and word spread quickly. A short 48 hours after a casual planning meeting in a park, on a gorgeous Friday in November, something EPIC happened.

Thousands showed up for a drive-thru and walk-up lemonade stand and people dug very deep into their pockets. Through online donations, people attending the event, and cars just stopping at traffic lights throwing money in buckets, the little lemonade stand that could raised almost $70,000.

Through the VCCF (the Ventura County Community Foundation), the overwhelming generosity of our community helped hundreds of local families financially. But more than that, the event raised the spirits of a community by giving everyone a reason to feel hopeful again.
