SOCIAL AND PROFESSIONAL NETWORKING WITH A PURPOSE
Candlelighters Young Professionals Group (YPG) was created to connect Houston area twenty and thirty-something professionals and patrons through philanthropy in support of 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 YPG members to directly impact families in Houston.
Candlelighters YPG members enjoy the benefits of social and peer networking while demonstrating their commitment to their community through fundraising and volunteerism.
HOW DO WE HELP?
Candlelighters YPG members are encouraged to leverage their personal and professional connections to raise awareness and funds for Candlelighters by participating in at least TWO (2) Candlelighters events throughout the calendar year.
Since 2009, the Candlelighters YPG has raised more than $450,000 through our signature event: Margarita Taste Off. Our members are involved in every aspect of our events, from sponsorship and auction procurement, to logistics and marketing.
Every year Candlelighters strives to make life a little bit easier for children who have cancer and those that love them. Help us support these families who face the stresses of childhood cancer every day. Currently there is no membership fee to join Candlelighters YPG.
