We know what you're thinking - NYE plans aren't even nailed down yet, and you want us to map out well into January? Hear us out. Given that the annual Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation gala sells out regularly (dubbed the Lemon Ball), we wanted to give you advance notice so you wouldn't miss out. Along with all the regular treats like cocktails, dinner, dessert, dessert, and silent and live auctions, this year's honorees include Marc Vetri, Jeff Michaud and Jeff Benjamin, the creators of the Great Chefs Event fund-raiser. For an evening out to benefit a noble cause - ending childhood cancer - we think we found your ticket (January 12, 6:30 PM-midnight; $250 per person; at the Philadelphia Marriott Downtown; buy tickets here).
