The sun was out and beaming down over the lawn of the Culver Studios Sunday afternoon, and actress Jennifer Garner told the guests of the first-ever L.A. Loves Alex's Lemonade event that she was sure Alex herself had arranged for the beautiful day.

Garner was the honorary chair of the event, which brought together epicureans and cocktail, beer, and wine enthusiasts, for an afternoon of eating and mingling to benefit Alex's Lemonade Stand, a national organization that raises money to cure childhood cancers. Celebrated chefs, mixologists, wineries, and restaurants from around the country were set up in booths around the perimeter of the grassy area in the shadow of one of the famous buildings used in the classic film Gone With the Wind.
