February 10th, 2020

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 26th Annual Tricky Tray at Mayfair Farms in West Orange on Sunday, February 9th. With more than 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 a record breaking $73,000.  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 volunteers and donors for continued support of children and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
