March 13th, 2017

The Candle Lighters, a 501c3 organization dedicated to raising money for the unfunded and under-funded programs of The Arc of Essex County, hosted their 23rd Annual Tricky Tray at Mayfair Farms in West Orange on Sunday, March 12. With more than 400 baskets and prizes up for grabs, the event was widely attended by seasoned Tricky Tray veterans and new attendees alike.

In total, The Candle Lighters welcomed nearly 450 attendees to the event and raised more than $60,000.  Funds raised will go toward unfunded and under-funded programs of The Arc of Essex County like Stepping Stones Early Intervention and Camp Hope.  The Arc of Essex County would like to recognize the tremendous success and thank all of the attendees and The Candle Lighters for continued support of children and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
