When life gives you lemons, make lemonade, Big Squeeze fundraiser returns today

The goal is $10,000 for the 10th anniversary.

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Northern BC (BigsNBC) is returning the Big Squeeze lemonade stand competition today (Wednesday).

Businesses across the city will be selling lemonade for four hours from 10-2pm, and some restaurants all day.

Since the first year of the event it has become massively successful, raising $80,000 in the past decade, and has been replicated in other communities across the country.
