It’s a very special, but abbreviated, show this Saturday morning (10:00 a.m. to 10:30 a.m.) as we salute the return of L.A. Loves Alex’s Lemonade Stand Culinary Cookout at UCLA benefiting the incredible work of Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation for Childhood Cancer. Chefs Suzanne Goin, Caroline Styne and Chef David Lentz host L.A. Loves Alex’s Lemonade Stand Culinary Cookout (for the 11th year) along with their Honorary Committee. It’s an extraordinary afternoon of food, wine, cocktails, music and friends benefiting pediatric cancer research. We then graciously step aside for Angels Baseball (on the road versus the Twins) at 10:30 a.m.
“Goin, Styne (The Lucques Group) and Lentz have again enlisted the support and generosity of their culinary-superstar friends around the country who donate their time and services to raise funds and awareness for Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF) and its mission to find better treatments and cures for all kids with cancer.”
“More than 2,500 people, including more than 100 chefs, mixologists and vintners, attended the last cookout in 2019, which raised over 1.3 million dollars. Those in attendance heard an inspiring speech by Jay and Liz Scott, Alex’s parents, and co-executive directors of Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation. Three-time childhood cancer survivor and UCLA graduate, Alexandra Keir, also spoke, telling guests about her experience with cancer and how supporters can join her and ALSF in the fight against childhood cancer.”
Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation Co-founder, Liz Scott, joins us with all the background on ALSF and their significant accomplishments over the years.
“‘We’re so excited to be back and we’re in awe of the commitment and generosity of Suzanne, Caroline and David, all the participating chefs, vintners, mixologists and guests of L.A. Loves Alex’s Lemonade,” said Liz Scott, Alex’s mom and Co-Executive Director of the Foundation. “It is so special to celebrate an entire decade of L.A. Loves Alex’s Lemonade! Every year we move closer to achieving Alex’s vision of finding a cure for all kids with cancer!”
