Loves Alex’s Lemonade Stand” will gather over 20 chefs (including Quince’s Michael Tusk, Marc Vetri of Osteria, and The Publican’s Paul Kahan) plus celebs like Jennifer Garner and Giada De Laurentiis to benefit the cancer fighting charity founded by four-year-old cancer victim Alexandra Scott in 2000.
