A premier culinary event to fight childhood cancer.
Lemon: Chicago, an exclusive culinary event benefiting Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF), was held August 7, 2017. With over 700 guests and with the help of the 30-plus chefs serving food, we raised an amazing $315,000 to help kids with cancer. Families like the Ciamarras, who shared their daughter Anna’s brave journey, continue to have hope thanks to the contributions from this event. During the event, nearly $100,000 was raised during the live auction and over $50,000 was donated during the Fund a Cure portion in honor of Anna Ciamarra.
Special thanks to our presenting sponsor Northwestern Mutual and to the chefs who generously donated their time and quality cooking skills for all in attendance. Finally, thanks to our hosts Paul Kahan, Donnie Madia and Tony Mantuano.
