When life gives you lemons, make lemonade: L.A. Loves Alex's Lemonade annual cookout benefit

November 2, 2011 |  9:00 am

Lemons 600

Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation emerged in 2000 after cancer patient Alex Scott announced that she wanted to build a lemonade stand in an effort to raise money to help find a cure for all children with cancer. Since then, the foundation has evolved into a national fundraising movement and includes L.A. Loves Alex's Lemonade, a culinary event taking place on Nov. 6. in Culver City.

From noon to 4 p.m., Culver Studios will host the second annual cookout where attendees can witness award-winning chefs demonstrate their culinary talents while filling up on food and drinks. Top chefs such as Suzanne Goin and Caroline Styne of Lucques, AOC and Tavern along with David Lentz of The Hungry Cat will host the event, and there will be a live and silent auction as well as a raffle, with all proceeds benefiting ALSF.

Tickets are $175 for general admission or $400 for VIP. Tickets are available for purchase online at www.lucques.com, www.thehungrycat.com or www.AlexsLemonade.org/campaign/la-loves-alexs-lemonade.

9336 Washington Blvd., Culver City, alexslemonade.org.
