An Evening of Hope

When it comes to dealing with cancer, hope is a very powerful thing. That’s something that was celebrated March 6 as Candlelighters Childhood Cancer Foundation of Nevada held its seventh annual An Evening of Hope fundraiser at World Market Center. More than 300 guests raised more than $140,000 to aid families of children with cancer and afford 20 kids the opportunity to attend the Camp Independent Firefly summer program. Highlights included a performance by Firefly camp kids and a gallery of children’s art created in collaboration with artists such as Michael Godard, which raised $10,000.
