Calling Candy Cane Lane Sponsors: your favorite time of year is here! Get out your Santa hat, and get ready to bring some gifts and joy to a Candlelighters family!
During the Holidays, many families with childhood cancer face difficult financial decisions and stress. They need our help putting presents under the tree. That’s where you come in! Candy Cane Lane is a Holiday party for families as well as a secret gift pickup. Each sponsor is matched to a family and provided the family’s wish list. Sponsors purchase, wrap and drop off the gifts to Candlelighters to be distributed to families at the Candy Cane Lane event. At Candy Cane Lane, families will enjoy a festive holiday themed walk-through with treats, special guests (a princess! a mascot!), crafts, pictures with Santa, and leave with a car full of gifts.
.Your generosity means the world to families during the holiday season!
