Tomorrow, food and drink lovers from all corners of the globe will gather at UCLA’s Royce Quad for the spectacular Who’s Who 8th Annual L.A. Loves Alex’s Lemonade  — an afternoon of fantastic fare, cocktails for a cause, children’s activities, silent and live auctions, and much more. The event will run from 12:30 – 4:30 pm.

Hosts Chef Suzanne Goin, Caroline Styne (Lucques,AOCTavern)  and David Lentz, (The Hungry Cat), head the return of the L.A. Loves Alex’s Lemonade culinary event on Saturday, September 9, 2017. In addition to the chef talent in attendance, return supporters will include Jimmy Kimmel, Joe Mantegna, Timothy Olyphant, Bailee Madison and Kirsten Vangsness.

 The 2017 event will include chefs Adam Perry LangGiada De Laurentiis, April BloomfieldNancy SilvertonChris BiancoDonald LinkJonathan WaxmanMichael Cimarusti, and Marc Vetriand many more coming together to cook for childhood cancer cures. Guests will also experience wine tasting from over 50 vintners and the cocktail artistry of major mixologists, including Eric Alperin (The Varnish), Neal Bodenheimer (Cure) and Christiaan Röllich (Lucques), among others, who will craft signature drinks for attendees.

The annual event has raised $4.5 million for pediatric cancer research — and last year’s event alone raised $1 million. Sample signature dishes and drinks from the impressive roster of legendary chefs and mixologists, be inspired by childhood cancer heroes, and hear updates on the Foundation’s mission to find a cure.
