Alex's Lemonade shoots for the stars -- and scores

July 12, 2012 |  6:23 pm

Suzanne Goin, husband David Lentz and business partner Caroline Styne are really going all out for this year's Alex's Lemonade fundraiser. It's not until Sept. 29, but the lineup already includes a cross-country assortment of star chefs such as (whew) Chris Bianco, April Bloomfield, Michael Cimarusti, Vinny Dotolo, Neal Fraser, Paul Kahan, Donald Link, Mary Sue Milliken, Matt Molina, Russell Moore, Zoe Nathan, Nancy Oakes, Steve Samson, Jon Shook, Nancy Silverton, Michael Tusk, Marc Vetri, Michael Voltaggio and Jonathan Waxman. And those are just the highlights.

The event's emcee will once again be Jimmy Kimmel. Giada de Laurentiis, Laura Dern, Carla Gugino, Ben Harper, Timothy Olyphant and Will Ferrell are among the bold-faced names on the host committee.

Tickets for the afternoon event, which will be held at Culver Studios, are $175. Feeling like a roller? There's a pre-event bash at Nancy Silverton's house for $1,200 per. And a VIP table for 10 goes for $5,000. It's all for a good cause, as Alex's Lemonade fights childhood cancer.
