Kate’s Lemonade Stand

Kate Hampson was 8 years old when she met the Opportunity Knocks warriors as they bicycled and walked by in her neighborhood. She wanted to do something to help support the organization and the kind and dedicated Warriors, so she organized a lemonade stand. Her goal was to raise $50, but with the help of the neighborhood the stand raised $500.

Last year the lemonade stand changed to Knocktoberfest and the kids sold warm cider on a cool fall day and raised over $3,000. Each year more neighborhood kids and families have joined in to help raise money to support Opportunity Knocks.

We can never predict the weather in October, but we can count on having a great time every year. Please come out and support Knocktoberfest and OK!
