Candlelighters Childhood Cancer Foundation of Nevada (CCCFN) is a private 501(c)(3) charitable corporation affiliated with the Candlelighters Childhood Cancer Foundation, an international organization of childhood cancer support groups headquartered in Washington, DC. CCCFN does not receive financial support from the Foundation or pay affiliation dues. Support comes from individual, group, and corporate donations and from private grants. These are supplemented with community and Candlelighters sponsored fund-raising events. Donors have the satisfaction of knowing their support and contributions are directly helping Nevada families who are struggling to deal with a childhood cancer diagnosis. While the Las Vegas community has been generous, financial needs are many and funding is a constant challenge.
For over twenty years The Candlelighters Golf Classic golf tournament has been a successful event to help achieve our financial goals. The Candlelighters 5K and 1 Mile “Race for Our Kids” is a fun annual event that encourages public participation and pledging. Recently, our Golden Gala, a black-tie event, has helped raise money and awareness for CCCFN. Community groups that wish to hold fund-raisers to support our services for families frequently contact CCCFN. All types of donations, whether financial, service, or in-kind are needed to continue achieving our mission. CCCFN’s goal is to never have to say “no” to a family in need.
