The Lights of Courage Luncheon is one of Candlelighters signature fundraising events. Every year, this luncheon gives Candlelighters the opportunity to honor young people who are lights of courage in their battle with cancer. They represent the thousands of childhood cancer families living right here in Houston.

We made the decision in April to postpone our annual luncheon with hopes of gathering in the Fall; however, with crowd restrictions still in place, and the health of our childhood cancer community top of mind, we have decided to take our Lights of Courage program virtual this year! Going virtual ensures that not only our current guests can participate within their own comfort zones and safety guidelines, but that our virtual program can reach more people than ever before, enabling Candlelighters to raise much-needed funding to continue serving children with cancer and their families.

Keynote Speaker: Melanie Shankle, 3-time New York Times Best Selling Author and everyday writer of "The Big Mama Blog". You can find her books HERE!

Luncheon Co-Chairs: Beth Guinn and Danielle Ryan
