Hosted by Chef Alex Guarnaschelli, Lemon: NYC Returns Tuesday, October 4, 2016

The exclusive culinary event will benefit childhood cancer research.

In their continuing efforts to raise funds and awareness for the fight against childhood cancer, over 20 superstar chefs will gather again for Lemon: NYC, an exclusive culinary event benefiting Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation on Tuesday, October 4, 2016 from 6-9 PM at the Metropolitan Pavilion, 125 W 18th Street, New York, NY. Hosted by Chef Alex Guarnaschelli of The Food Network and Butter Restaurant and presented by Toys “R” Us and Volvo, the event brings together top chefs to cook for and mingle with guests in the heart of Chelsea.

Guests will have the opportunity to engage in casual conversations with their favorite chefs—including Guarnaschelli, Marcus Samuelsson, Rocco Whalen and more—while sampling a wide range of sweet and savory dishes. A full list of participating chefs are below.

In addition to the delicious food and fabulous auctions, Liz and Jay Scott, parents of founder Alexandra “Alex” Scott, will share the story of how Alex and her lemonade stands inspired a national fundraising movement leading to innovative childhood cancer research.

Since it started, Lemon: NYC has helped to raise well over $1 million to help fight childhood cancer because of the generosity of the chefs and attendees.

Individual tickets for Lemon: NYC are $250 and sponsorship opportunities are available. For more information, visit
