Wine, Dine & Help Find Cures For Childhood Cancer

Chefs across the country donate their time, passion, talents and amazing food creations for one cause: finding a cure for childhood cancer. Since 2006, our culinary events have raised millions of dollars for research. Much like Alex and her lemonade stand, these culinary events have grown in a grassroots way, with chefs and restaurateurs inspired to do more each year. Today, there are four unique culinary events benefitting ALSF. Find out more about our celebrity chef supporters that help make these events successful.
