Ditch the standard cufflinks and suitcoat because The Lemon Ball isn’t your typical gala. From the yellow ties to the beautiful lemon décor, the special night is all about making a huge impact for kids fighting cancer. Everything kicks off with a cocktail reception where guests can bid on auction items sure to leave attendees awestruck. The evening continues with a gourmet meal, stories and interviews with childhood cancer families, speeches honoring Alex Scott’s legacy and a thrilling live auction. It all concludes with guests dancing the night away to a live band. 

The Alex Scott Crystal Cup Awards will also be presented to an individual and a group for their commitment to continuing Alex’s mission to fight childhood cancer, one cup at a time.

To get a taste of what’s in store, check out pictures from last year’s eventVideo of the program is also available to watch. Sign up below to learn when information is available for 2020.
