L.A. Loves Alex's Lemonade

L.A. Loves Alex's Lemonade

Thanks for attending L.A. Loves Alex's Lemonade 2019!

It was a memorable day, as your support helped raise $1.3 million! This will allow ALSF to fund projects like new clinical trials that will probive promising ways to treat childhood cancers.

There were almost too many highlights to count. Whether it was fabulous food and drinks or Alexandra Keir's inspiring speech about her cancer fight and dedicating her life to finding more cures, the day certainly wasn't short on fun and excitement. Check out our Facebook page to see all the photos from this sweet event!

Special thanks to our presenting sponsors Northwestern Mutual and Volvo and the generous chefs, vintners and mixologists who kept guests satisfied all afternoon. Shout out to our hosts Chef Suzanne Goin, business partner Caroline Styne (Lucques, aoc, Tavern) and Chef David Lentz for their amazing support.


We would love for you to join us next year!
