Casino Night March 4, 2023

DC Candlelighters successfully held its First Annual Casino Night Fundraiser on March 4, 2023, at the Arlington Knights of Columbus. Guests enjoyed Blackjack, Roulette, Poker, and Craps and were playing with funny money to seek out 1st, 2nd and 3rd Place. When not at the casino tables, guests were bidding on fabulous silent auction items, enjoying spectacular food, sipping on Firefly Tea, our signature drink of the night, identifying raffle items they were hoping to win, and simply being silly @ the Silly Shotz Photo Booth!

It was a tremendous amount of fun all to raise money to support DMV families who have children fighting cancer. We are especially grateful to our sponsors. Each sponsor received a designated casino table, food, drink, silent auction, or raffle table with their name prominently displayed.

This was a huge undertaking, countless hours of work by many, dedication to our mission, and just a great group of people. Because of this event DC Candlelighters will not only be able to continue their mission, but they will also be able to provide additional financial support to our families.

We honored the 2022 Volunteer of the Year, Dawn Donnelly and warrior mom’s Claire Hobson whose son is Grant and Jenna Sangastiano whose son is Sawyer. We are grateful to the Knights of Columbus who hosted our event. Thank you as well to our many corporate sponsors and individual donors. The night would not have been complete without Ted Showker and his Silly Shotz Photobooth Company.
