Our story

The Tuscaloosa Story

Townsquare Media Tuscaloosa is excited to bring Lemonade Day back to Tuscaloosa!  Lemonade Day engages every sector of our community, including families, businesses, youth organizations, schools and community-leaders. The support from the Tuscaloosa community has continued to keep this event and its materials free to every kid that wishes to participate. With over 700 registered children last year, we could not do this without the support of our sponsors and the community. The foremost objective is to empower youth to take ownership of their own lives and become productive members of society – the business leaders, social advocates, volunteers, and forward-thinking citizens of tomorrow.

This is all possible thanks to our sponsors:

Presenting Sponsor: Canada Dry Ginger Ale and Lemonade

Best Business Contest Sponsor: Cadence Bank

Main Squeeze Sponsors: 

Fresh Squeeze Sponsors: 

Community Partners: The Chamber of Commerce of West Alabama
