Join Billy King for the 2012 'Lemon Ball'

December 16, 2011

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J.Melanie and Billy King, Gala Co-Chairs for the 2012 Lemon Ball benefiting Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation, invite our New Jersey Nets fans to celebrate the life and legacy of a very special little girl, Alexandra "Alex" Scott, on Jan. 14, 2012 at the Philadelphia Marriott Downtown. Join the Kings in raising awareness and support to fund research that is critical to finding new treatments for childhood cancer.

Billy first met Alex in 2002, when he visited her during one of her front-yard lemonade stands, held to raise money for kids with cancer. Just 6 years old and fighting cancer herself, Alex inspired Billy with her strength and courage. From that day forward, he attended every one of her annual lemonade stands, becoming Alex's friend and advocate.

Despite Alex's passing in 2004, Melanie and Billy remain loyal supporters of Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation, dedicated to realizing Alex's vision of finding a cure for childhood cancer. Please visit to learn more about this special evening and purchase tickets. We hope to see you there!
