Thank you for joining us for the 10th Annual Margarita Taste Off hosted by the Candlelighters Young Professionals Group!  Thanks to our amazing committee, sponsors, restaurants, volunteers and ticket holders, we had our most successful event to-date raising 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.

Candlelighters’ Young Professional Group members enjoy the benefits of social and peer networking while demonstrating their commitment to their community through fundraising and volunteerism. Candlelighters’ Young Professionals Group members are also given the opportunity to develop and enhance their leadership skills by serving on a Candlelighters committee or board.
