February 26th, 2018

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 24th Annual Tricky Tray at Mayfair Farms in West Orange on Sunday, February 25. With nearly 500 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 more than 500 attendees to the event and raised more than $50,000.  Event proceeds 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.
