I had the wonderful opportunity to spend time with family and friends this past Saturday, September 14th in bustling Los Angeles for the tenth annual L.A. Loves Alex’s Lemonade event!
This fun, family-friendly event raises money to support Alex’s Lemonade, an organization founded to help families affected by childhood cancer. Donations go to the funding of research for treatments and cures as well as programs providing emotional, financial, and logistical support during a time when these families need it the most. I’m in awe of the bravery and strength displayed by the children and their families battling this disease, and I highly recommend visiting their website, Alex’s Lemonade, to learn more.
L.A. Loves is hosted every year by Chef Suzanne Goin, her business partner Caroline Styne, and Chef David Lentz. Believe me, if you’re a foodie, this is the place to be! These rock stars recruit dozens of gourmet chefs and mixologists from across the country to whip up an array of culinary delights. All that AND a long list of vintners for those wine connoisseurs out there- you can be sure there’s something for everyone! Also, there’s a neat auction featuring various donations of event tickets, tangible goods, and talents/services on which to bid.
HUGE gratitude for a great day full of family, friends, fun, and food- I’m already looking forward to next year!
