Thank you to everyone who made the 10th Annual Margarita Taste Off our best year yet! We raised more than $90,000 to provide emotional, educational, and practical support to children with cancer and their families right here in Houston!


Get Involved

Candlelighters’ Young Professional’s Group was created to connect Houston area twenty and thirty-something professionals through philanthropy in support Candlelighters’ mission: to provide emotional, educational and practical assistance to families of children with cancer treated at the Texas Medical Center. Candlelighters provides a unique experience for Candlelighters’ Young Professional Group members to directly impact families in Houston.
