Thank you for attending The 14th Annual Lemon Ball!

Year after year, The Lemon Ball leaves a lasting impact to help kids fight cancer. Thanks to your dedication to the cause, you helped raise a record-breaking $906,000 (and counting) on Saturday, January 18! This immense support is not only admirable, it is a pivotal part of Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation’s (ALSF) commitment to finding cures.

The Lemon Ball was extra special this year, as it coincided on what would have been Alex Scott’s 24th birthday. We celebrated in a big way by honoring all childhood cancer hero families with a song performed by the Philadelphia Boys Choir, recognizing Power Home Remodeling with the Alex Scott Crystal Cup and awarding the inaugural Childhood Cancer Lifetime Achievement Award to Dr. David Poplack. Fund A Cure was also dedicated to Dr. Poplack’s project, Global Hematology-Oncology Pediatric Excellence (HOPE), a program focused on building long-term capacity to treat and dramatically improve the prognosis for children with cancer and blood disorders in sub-Saharan Africa. The entire program was filled with inspiring speeches, adorable interviews with childhood cancer heroes, a haiku reading and a thrilling live auction!

You can check out pictures from this gorgeous evening in the ALSF Facebook album.

Special thanks to our wonderful presenting sponsors, ALDI, Applebee’s, Northwestern Mutual and Volvo. An additional thanks to our generous diamond sponsors, Auntie Anne’s, General Floor and Power Home Remodeling. And finally, thanks to all the Lemon Ball sponsors, benefactors, supporters and volunteers who make this event possible.


We would love for you to join us next year!
