The Lemon Society of Philadelphia, a group of young professionals in the Philadelphia region which supports the Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation, are holding the first-ever Lemon Society Speakeasy cocktail party on Friday, April 20, 8-11 p.m. at the ARTS Ballroom.

The prohibition-themed mixology event is a fundraiser for ALSF’s Annual Childhood Cancer Symposium, which benefits families who have been affected by childhood cancer.

It’s a who’s who of the local drink scene, with celebrity bartenders from The Franklin Mortgage & Investment Co., Osteria, STARR Restaurants’ Continental Midtown and more serving up sips.

Guest judges will vote on their favorite lemon-inspired cocktail and attendees will vote for the “People’s Choice.” Meanwhile, DJ Eddie Tully will be mixing modern and prohibition era music for the night.

Catering will be provided by Stephen STARR Events, with wine, spirits and beer provided by Barefoot Wine and Bubbly, Philadelphia Brewing Company, Philadelphia Distilling and Red Stag.

And break out the cloche hats and fedoras: attendees are encouraged to wear 1920′s attire. Tickets, $75, are available online.
