BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (WBKO) - On a warm summer weekend night at a Hot Rods game, the only thing you need to complete the ballpark experience is a cold drink in your hand. A couple of nonprofits are helping to make up for a year of reduced fundraising, turning those lemons into lemonade.

Every Friday and Saturday Hot Rods home game, Crocker Law Firm will have a lemonade stand set up to benefit one of two local nonprofits. On Friday nights, the money goes to Down Syndrome of South Central Kentucky. On Saturdays it goes to the Boys to Men Leadership Group of Kentucky. Members and volunteers from the nonprofits come out to work the stand. “The feedback we’re getting is that it’s so great because it gives the groups exposure, it gives the community a chance to understand what these groups are about. And so, just like everything else that happens at the ballpark, it’s just really beneficial to the Bowling Green community,” said attorney Cyndi Crocker.

Kyle Wolz, Assistant General Manager for the Bowling Green Hot Rods, said he’s pleased with the attendance numbers he’s seen so far this season. “This past Friday we had over 4,000 people in the park and then Saturday we had roughly 3,000. And so it has been great and we have an action-packed schedule for our promotions throughout the rest of the year.”

Wolz added about the Friday and Saturday evening lemonade stands, “And I will say in a non-biased opinion that it’s probably the best lemonade that I’ve ever had.”
