SUMMER SURPRISES

Summer Surprises parties are held each summer for Texas Children’s Cancer Center, MD Anderson Children’s Cancer Hospital, and Children’s Memorial Hermann pediatric oncology patients.  Candlelighters staff and volunteers organize a fun party, full of summer surprises, for patients and their families!  This event includes providing gifts and treats, fun crafts and activities, and more surprises to provide a little bit of “holiday cheer” in the middle of summer.

Due to COVID-19 and restrictions at our partner hospitals, the 2022 Summer Surprises event will be held off of the hospital premises at a third-party location on July 12, 2022.  Registered Candlelighters families will be sent event and RSVP information closer to the date!

For event sponsorship information or to provide an in-kind donation, please contact Carly Bradshaw at [email protected].  To inquire about volunteer opportunities, please contact Sydney Williams at [email protected].
