Liz LaBan delights her fans at our latest benefit event for Alex’s Lemonade Stand.

More than 80 guests joined us for a joyful evening with Elizabeth LaBan, author of “The Restaurant Critic’s Wife.” The benefit for Alex’s Lemonade Stand, hosted by Yangming and The Albertson Cooking School, featured readings, Q&A, exceptional hors d’ouvres from Yangming, and fine wines & mixed drinks from Lauber Fine Wines and Craft Spirits. Elizabeth answered questions from the audience, including former CBS3 News Anchor Pat Ciarrocchi, about how her life with Inquirer restaurant critic Craig LaBan became a fictional tale. Afterwards, Liz chatted with guests as she autographed copies of her book. Everyone had a great time.
