Over $1 million raised in 2016!

Over 2,000 people attended our 2016 L.A. Loves Alex’s Lemonade event which brought in superstar chefs and mixologists from across the country to Los Angeles to lend their support and fight childhood cancer. This event on September 10, 2016 raised over $1 million. Our live and silent auctions brought in $440,000 alone. Late-night host, Jimmy Kimmel and several chefs pulled together two spontaneous dinners that went for a total of $110,000. The Kids’ Campaign raised $23,000 through their lemonade stands, bake sales and other creative fundraising activities throughout the year.

Special thanks to Chef Suzanne Goin and business partner, Caroline Styne along with Chef David Lentz who hosted the event at the Royce Quad at UCLA.
