Spin for Camp Delight
Spin for Camp Delight is an annual fundraising event dedicated to raising money in support of Camp Delight. It is a fun and meaningful way to engage the community and raise money for children and families along their cancer journey.
In 2020, during these very different times of COVID-19, we decided to put a more 'positive spin' on staying at home. We decided to do our Spin for Camp Delight this year - but we went virtual!
When life gets back to normal – and it will – our campers will still need your help! This year's Spin enabled our supporters to join us virtually. They could bike, run, walk...it didn't matter what they did...just that they DID! Our Virtual Spin for Camp Delight took place the week of June 21-27, 2020!

Although this year's event has come to a close, your continued support is needed. To donate to Candlelighters today, please click HERE!

Night of Delight
Ches’s Famous Fish & Chips hosts an annual Night of Delight fundraiser in aid of Candlelighters Newfoundland and Labrador. The event includes a silent and live auction, dinner, and dance with live entertainment. It’s an evening full of excitement and generous support for the programs provided to oncology families by the Candlelighters Association. In a year without COVID-19 we would be asking for your support through the donation of auction items for silent or live auctions. There are a lot of talented people here in Newfoundland and Labrador (Music, Arts, Photography, Crafts, Independent business owners, etc.).
As we were unable to gather together safely for our annual Ches's Night of Delight this year due to COVID-19, we decided to have our very own 50/50 draw! Congratulations to Teena & Ric Rumbolt with the winning ticket and a prize of $8,912.50!
We look forward to when we can all be together again, but we can still raise funds for Camp Delight if we're all in this together.
Your support matters...Because kids can't fight cancer alone!
Go Gold – Childhood Cancer Awareness Month
September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. Every year approximately 1500 Canadian children are diagnosed with cancer and approximately 25 of these new Canadian diagnoses are children living in Newfoundland and Labrador. It is the leading cause of non-accidental death in children.
During September we advocate for awareness of childhood cancer by reaching out to municipalities across the province to sign a proclamation in recognition of Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. We also participate in 'Go Gold' lighting ceremonies including a lighting at the Confederation Building where the building is lit in gold for childhood cancer awareness. We encourage municipalities to participate in ‘Go Gold’ light ceremonies.
Family Christmas Parties
Each year we host a Christmas party in St. John’s for oncology families to come and enjoy the holiday season together! Every party includes entertainment (such as ornament painting, cookie decorating, magic show, live music, etc.), an assortment of food, and a visit from Santa with a gift for each child!
We also host family Christmas parties in other areas in the province, which may vary year to year.
