ORLANDO, Fla.Lime Fresh Mexican Grill is looking to help some lucky students go back to school with custom sneakers at the chain’s Lake Nona location.

The event is set for Friday, Aug. 19, from 5 to 9 p.m. at the restaurant located at 13052 Narcoossee Road.


The restaurant is bringing in Central Florida artists from Lisa Brady Studio, Se7enCustomss, LacedUpFeed and ArtwithCJ to customize sneakers for more than 30 K-12 students, according to a news release.

Children are also encouraged to bring their other back-to-school items — backpacks, pencil cases, denim and lunch boxes — to receive iron-on patches from artist Julee Dempsey, the company said.
