Ditch the standard cufflinks and suitcoat because The Lemon Ball isn’t your generic gala. Complete with lemon yellow ties, heartwarming speeches by kids fighting cancer and fond remembrances of Alex Scott’s lasting legacy, this annual event has inspired attendees since 2006. The unforgettable evening kicks off with a reception full of amazing auction items before transitioning to a ballroom for a gourmet meal and meaningful onstage program. Everyone ends the night dancing away to a live band before heading home knowing their support made a huge impact for Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation.

Special Awardees will also be recognized for their commitment to the Foundation and the fight against childhood cancer.

The 2018 Lemon Ball raised enough to fund over six and a half years’ worth of research and was attended by more than 850 guests including prominent business executives, local celebrities and Alex’s family and friends. We hope you’ll join us in kicking off 2019 by contributing to the fight to find a cure! Learn more about our past Lemon Ball events.

General Admission Ticket: $275 ($100 tax-deductible)
