The haute chefs of Los Angeles came out in droves to support Alex’s Lemonade Stand and serve up some haute cuisine at the L.A. Loves Alex’s Lemonade extravaganza over the weekend.

The fifth annual event was an overwhelming success, raising $700,000 for Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation at the event’s new location at UCLA’s Royce Quad.

More than 2,000 guests attended, including the 40 chefs, mixologists and vintners who were on hand to raise funds and awareness for childhood cancer research.

$202,000 was raised during a live auction, which included lots like a female chef dinner prepared by Suzanne Goin, April Bloomfield, Giada De Laurentiis and Nancy Oakes.

Young actors and actresses greeted guests upon their arrival at the event, handing out lemonade for all guests, from the Alex’s Lemonade stand, with delicious varieties of lemonade graciously provided by the Lemonade restaurants.

Scott Conant, Maria Hines, Steve Samson, Rocco Whale and Giada De Laurentiis were paired with five MasterChef Jr. past and current contestants, providing additional inspiration for all in attendance at the event.
