BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – The Candlelighters of Brevard hosted their 11th annual dinner and auction fundraiser on Saturday, Feb. 9 at the Eau Gallie Yacht Club and raised over $160,000 for children with cancer.
Candlelighters of Brevard is a nonprofit organization dedicated to children with cancer and their families by offering emotional support and financial assistance.
“Every year our ‘Have a Heart’ Valentine’s Extravaganza event brings loyal sponsors, guests and many new faces together embracing our mission to assist children battling cancer,” said Candlelighters Executive Director Carrie Wam-McCarthy.
“It’s truly an honor to be a part of every one of our Candlelighters kids’ lives. The Candlelighters organization is grateful and blessed by the generosity it is shown every single year,” said Wam-McCarthy.
“Sponsorships continue to rise as our close-knit community rallies to raise awareness and support for its children with cancer. Every newly diagnosed child who joins Candlelighters, the kids and families that have been with them for years, and those children who have lost their fight against cancer, continue to be constant motivation and inspiration for Candlelighters and its dedicated supporters.”
