This initial “one time event”, held in January 2014, will be taking place on Friday February 13th At the Ramada Inn. Last year, just over $30,000 was raised to assist Candlelighters, a wonderful organization which provides programs and services for young cancer patients being treated in Eastern Ontario, and to the families they depend on for strength and support.
Organizers are looking to top this amount in 2015.
The event will consist of Cocktails and hors d’oeuvres, three course dinner with wine, silent and live auctions and a dance featuring Spare Partz. The attire is Formal Dress and masks will be provided.
Tickets are $75 per person and available at: Life’s Little Pleasures, Scotia Bank or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
Tables of 8 can be reserved.
Did you know? ~ Cancer is the second leading cause of death in Ontario children, each year only accidents will surpass the cause of death in children. Each year approximately 400 children are diagnosed with cancer in Ontario. More than one child per week will be diagnosed in our region. The psychological and social impact of childhood cancer can be significant, not just on the child, but also on the immediate and extended family.
The Cyberkids program helps the children continue their education while undergoing treatment by lending them iPads/laptops. These are but a few examples of the services provided by the Candlelighters.
