COMMUNITY EVENTS FOR CANDLELIGHTERS
Candlelighters partners with groups in the community who raise funds in support of childhood cancer families each year. Community events are a HUGE asset to our daily programs and services we provide to children with cancer and their families, making up about 1/4 of our annual fundraising dollars. Thank you to all our community event partners!
CROSBY FAIR AND RODEO
Each February the Crosby Fair and Rodeo committee hosts Bras for a Cause; an event where men from the Crosby community design and model bras all to raise funds for cancer families in the community. Yes, you might have to see it to believe it! Since 2017, they have awarded more than $127,000 for Candlelighters programs and services to support childhood cancer families. Stay tuned for the 2023 date!

MONTZ AND MAHER SMILES FOR LIFE WHITENING CAMPAIGN
Each year from March 1 – June 30, Montz and Maher Dental Group runs a whitening campaign for charity. Starting at $200, 100% of whitening treatments in this time frame benefit charity. Candlelighters is honored to be their local charity partner for our third year!
TEAM REJOYCE WASHER TOURNAMENT
After losing their mother to a long, hard fought battle with cancer, Joyce’s family decided it was time to fight back. In 2009, Team ReJoyce was created, and what started out as a small fundraiser in their backyard has turned into a community-wide annual event. It is their goal to fight this awful disease and to help ease the burden from those currently facing this challenge. Please stay tuned for the 2023 date.
We’re always looking to partner with community members! If you’re interested in having Candlelighters as a beneficiary of your event or looking to start an event, please contact our Associate Director, Kelsey Tarpinian at [email protected] or (713) 270-4700.
