Fighting childhood cancer never tasted so good!
Lemon: NYC welcomed over 300 guests on October 27, 2015 for a memorable and exclusive culinary event that raised nearly $350,000 for Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation and the fight against childhood cancer! Hosted by Chef Alex Guarnaschelli of New York’s Butter Restaurant and the Food Network, the event brought superstar chefs under one roof to prepare signature plates for guests.
The Live Auction alone raised $145,000, with a private cooking class with Chef Geoffrey Zakarian going twice for $17,000 and a private dinner with Chefs Alex Guarnaschelli, Aarón Sánchez, Scott Conant, Marc Vetri and Marcus Samuelsson selling 3 times over for $30,000 each. The Fund A Cure, in which guests donated directly to a research project, raised over $25,000. The presence at the event of many Food Network personalities, including Geoffrey Zakarian and Katie Lee, added to the excitement of the evening.
