Erika Takes Part in Breaking The World Record For The Longest Lemonade Stand

Breaking a world record in Calgary on September 18, 2014  for the World’s Longest Lemonade Stand - our daughter Erika to the right in this photo below:






Baytex Energy Corp. sponsored and participated in an attempt to break the standing record held in the Guinness Book of World Records for the World’s Longest Lemonade Stand.  In all, there was  351 decorated stands taking part from various companies and groups hoping to sell as much of the donated lemonade as possible in a three hour span. Where Erika works, Valiant , they manned two stands.



The goal for the event was mostly the world record, but more so to raise funds and awareness for a cause that has touched so many; bullying.  “Dare to Care” , a  charitable organization behind the initiative and hope they can help kids by providing bullying awareness and prevention programs to the school community.

The event ended up breaking the world record for the longest lemonade stand, coming in at over 1,500 feet with 357 stands. In addition to that they raised approximately $150,000 from the stand donations and $23,450 in lemonade sales! And all of those funds are going to help Dare to Care implement anti-bullying programs in schools.

Way to go everyone!
