Knockout Cancer for Candlelighters Kids
Published on Wed, Oct 10, 2012 (1:25 p.m.)Now in its third year, Round 3: Knockout Cancer for Candlelighters’ Kids is an annual MMA event that was created to help raise funds and awareness for Candlelighters Childhood Cancer Foundation of Nevada. This year’s event will be held October 11, 2012 at the Pearl Concert Theater inside Palms Casino Resort. Doors open at 6 p.m. and tickets are available starting at just $30.
Following two successful years, Knockout Cancer has outgrown its original venue at Xtreme Couture and finds a new home at the Pearl. This exciting, unique charity event features a night of amazing fights, live entertainment and a fabulous silent auction.
Candlelighters Childhood Cancer Foundation of Nevada provides necessary support and services for local families of children diagnosed with cancer, having helped several thousands of children in our community since the organization was founded in 1978. Candlelighters serves approximately 100 families monthly, and as many as 300 families throughout the year and funds raised by events such as Knockout Cancer, help the organization provide much needed services.
Knockout Cancer continues to build on its efforts to raise more money and help more children. The event has raised nearly $30,000 since its first year and with help of their generous sponsors, the event returns this October 11 at The Pearl Theater at The Palms for its biggest year to-date.
