EVENT DATE: July 24-26, 2015



Help us have lemonade stands in every state and around the globe.
 Every lemonade stand counts! 


Lemonade for Livy is an initiative that raises epilepsy awareness and research funding for the Epilepsy Foundation. The event occurs yearly over the course of the fourth weekend in July. It is an effort that brings people from around the world together to give hope to those with epilepsy and their families that new treatments will be discovered.


10-year-old Olivia Scheinman (Livy) is the inspiration and symbol behind Lemonade for Livy, a movement created by her family’s organization, Livy’s Hope. 


Join Livy as a hero and build a lemonade stand for someone you know with epilepsy too! Build a stand for me. Livy and I are in this together!

 Collectively, we make up the epilepsy community and family. As a family, we need to work as one to raise awareness and to fund research that will lead to a cure. 65 million people around the world live with epilepsy. That doesn’t include the tens of millions of family members and friends who are also impacted by the disorder. Think of the power we have when we all work toward a common mission.


Honored Hero: 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 campaign. 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.
