Today is a sad day at Lemonade Day as we mourn the death of one of our greatest influences and most ardent supporters. Dr. Peter Benson, passed away on Sunday October 2, 2011. Dr. Benson was a tremendous inspiration to Lemonade Day. Years ago when planning Prepared 4 Life, SEARCH Institute was instrumental in forming the mission and vision for the organization. The 40 Developmental Assets serve as touchstones for our work every day.  “Peter Benson was an extraordinary human being who was committed to growing great kids. The world is a less bright place today,” said Lemonade Day co-founder Michael Holthouse. Dr. Benson’s legacy will live on the millions of lives his work has enriched. Our thoughts are with his family, friends and colleagues during this time of sadness.
