  • Print

A night of culinary tastes from top Las Vegas restaurants, beautiful and heart-warming children’s art, great silent and live auction prizes, and good friends gathering for a good cause is planned to help children with cancer. An Evening of Hope will be Friday, June 6 at 7 p.m. at the World Market Center, located at 495 S. Grand Central Pkwy, Ste. #2203. The epicurean-style experience and cocktail reception fundraiser will raise money for the Candlelighters Childhood Cancer Foundation of Nevada. The nonprofit provides support, education, hope and advocacy through programs and services for children and adolescents with cancer and their families in Southern Nevada. An Evening of Hope features complimentary cocktails, wine and hors d’oeuvres. One of the evening’s highlights is the Children’s Art Gallery, which features photography and modern art for sale by Candlelighters beneficiaries. Guests also are invited to bring a bottle of wine, valued at $25 or more, to contribute to a wine package for the live auction. Live entertainment will be provided by DJ C01 and John Colombo, and several Candlelighters kids will perform. Three Candlelighters beneficiaries will be recognized for their courage, strength and hope exhibited throughout the challenges of their life with cancer. Ray of Hope honorees are: Karon, 13, who has Hodgkin’s lymphoma; Ryan Pak, 5, who has B-cell lymphoma; and Zoe, 14, who has Hodgkin’s lymphoma. Don Jean, a Candlelighters board member who also serves on several event committees, will be honored as Volunteer of the Year. Southwest Gas Corporation will receive the Founders Award for its Fuel for Life Campaign. Tickets are available now for $125 per person until May 1, and will be $150 per person after that.
