Thanks for your support of The 2015 Lemon Ball!
The Ninth Annual Lemon Ball, on Saturday, January 10, 2015, was a special and meaningful night attended by nearly 1,000 supporters in “yellow tie.” With delicious food and drinks, fantastic silent and live auction items, and moving speeches from our honorees and childhood cancer heroes, it was a night to remember and most importantly, the outpouring of generosity at the Ninth Annual Ball raised more than $1 million for childhood cancer research.
Highlights from the evening included the presentation of the Alex Scott Crystal Cup to Stephen and Ivy Cohn, the Stand Host of the Year Award to Riley Gillespie and Volunteers of the Year Award to the Fitzgerald family. Childhood cancer heroes spoke poignantly and presented the honors.
The Fund a Cure portion of the evening was dedicated in memory of childhood cancer heroes Hope Bertelsen and Dan Hammond. Supporters raised $135,000 in a matter of minutes, and their donations were generously matched by Northwestern Mutual, so they will have an even greater impact.
Making the evening especially noteworthy, the funds raised at the gala propelled the Foundation’s total amount raised to over $100 million since Alexandra “Alex” Scott held her first front-yard lemonade stand in 2000, marking an amazing milestone for the Foundation that carries on her inspiring legacy.
The Ball was presented by Northwestern Mutual, Toys“R”Us & Volvo with support from Auntie Anne’s.
