“Candlelighters Childhood Cancer Foundation of Nevada (Candlelighters) was chartered in 1978 by two families, each of whom had a child being treated for cancer. With little to no resources to help them navigate the world of childhood cancer, they came together to create a network of support for families affected by the disease.”
In 2017, Hakkasan Group raised $20,000 in donations which was presented at the Superhero 5K hosted by Candlelighers, in which 55 Hakkasan Group employees participated as runners. Hakkasan Group staff also sponsored and volunteered at the annual Halloween Bash at Ellis Island Hotel and Brewery.
“Candlelighters provides emotional support, quality of life programming, and financial assistance for children and their families affected by childhood cancer. Funds raised from our events are used to help provide unique services to children diagnosed with cancer and their families. Candlelighters values any support and dedication to our organization and knows that without community involvement we could not fulfill our mission. Candlelighters offers love, care, encouragement, and understanding so that nobody will face the uncertain world of childhood cancer alone.”
