We cancelled our Cancer Warrior Breakfast due to COVID-19, but are thrilled to announce that through our online campaign, we raised more than $70,000 in lieu of the in-person Cancer Warrior Breakfast. This could not have been done without support from key community members including our board members and donors, as well as matching gifts from The Schuler Family Foundation and Jeanne Beacham. Thank you to our sponsors: MediaWorks, First Republic Bank, Genentech, InRoads Credit Union, Joshua Callahan, Attorney and Pacific West Bank. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you! Because of you, we can continue to provide services and programs to the families impacted by childhood cancer.
Candlelighters For Children With Cancer’s 17th annual Harvest of Hope was a wonderful success. We had more than 250+ attendees, wonderful silent and live auction items. Nana Khing and Jeff Best shared the story of their son Christian's diagnosis, and more families represented the raffle table. Togther, we raised more than $160,000! What a fun event, and we look forward to Harvest of Hope in 2020.
