Organizers of the Lemonade Day children’s entrepreneurial program are seeking donations to start a seed fund.

The group wants to raise $5,000 to $10,000 to support a new source of funds for the annual lemonade sales day that teaches Indianapolis-area students about running their own businesses.

The seed fund will give participants the chance to pitch ideas for their lemonade businesses and secure startup capital.

Indianapolis Mayor Greg Ballard, entrepreneur Scott Jones, media personality Peter Dunn, and the firms Verge and TechPoint are hosting a fundraiser that runs 6-8 p.m. Monday at The Speak Easy, 5255 North Winthrop Ave., in Broad Ripple.

In May, roughly 15,000 local K-12 students had sales of about $2.4 million during Lemonade Day, which raised more than $800,000 for charities of their choice.
