17th Annual Have-A-Heart Valentine’s Extravaganza

17th Annual Have-A-Heart Valentine’s Extravaganza
February 9th, 2019

Candlelighters of Brevard is grateful for your support of our 17th Annual Have-A-Heart Valentine’s Extravaganza! Thank you for joining Candlelighters as we paid tribute to the final Have-A-Heart event.

Bigger than this event is your support for our families battling pediatric cancer. Because of your sponsorships, donations and volunteerism, Candlelighters is able to provide critical financial & emotional support to over 80 local families. Because of your tremendous backing of this year’s Have-A-Heart event, nearly $230,000 was raised. These donation dollars translate into allowing us to DOUBLE the caps on our major services provided; introduce FOUR new programs; and EXPAND our reach to Indian River County. It takes an entire community coming together in order to provide for our most vulnerable population – our precious children. Our HEART of thanks goes out to you for making these growth opportunities possible.

The number of families needing our support and services is only growing. We understand that the reality of childhood cancer is too sobering to imagine. However, if this is going to be their reality to bear as children, then Candlelighters must continue to advance in order to meet their complex health needs. Thus, the organization retired this historic event for the purpose of fostering new vision, expansion and development in 2020 and beyond. The Candlelighters’ Board and Executive Staff look forward to sharing more information about the new event replacing Have-A-Heart that will celebrate our courageous children while providing sponsors, donors and volunteers with the best possible event experience. More details to be shared later this year.

Thank you for investing your time, talent and financial treasures into the families of Candlelighters. Cancer is a dreadful disease that produces tremendous pain and fear for an entire family impacted. The very thought of children having to face this overwhelming battle is heartbreaking. However, providing LIGHT in a time of darkness – HOPE in a time of despair – and LOVE in the midst of battle – is exactly why Candlelighters exists. Candlelighters of Brevard sincerely appreciates that you “Have-A-Heart” for our children conquering cancer!

Sincere gratitude,

Natasha Duran, Executive Director
Candlelighters Board of Directors & Executive Staff
