Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF) honors a young girl named Alex Scott who set up a front-yard lemonade stand to raise money to help find a cure for cancer while fighting her own. The Lemon Ball continues this tradition, raising over $900,000 for childhood cancer research this year. The evening included dinner, dancing, dessert, silent and live auctions, and heartwarming speeches from childhood cancer heroes. The 14th annual event coincided with what would have been Scott’s 24th birthday.
