Candlelighters Childhood Cancer Foundation of Nevada held its annual Evening of Hope to support kids with cancer and their families at the Worldview venue, which overlooks the city on the 16th floor of World Market Center.

Chet Buchanan from KLUC 98.5 FM Morning Zoo served as the Evening of Hope’s emcee and live auctioneer. New this year, featured artist Kitos Lucero collaborated with 3-year-old King Magana, a cancer survivor, Candlelighters beneficiary and Evening of Hope honoree (presented the 2017 Childhood Cancer Survivor Award), to create a graffiti masterpiece for the live auction. Other Shine Award honorees included Rhona Myers, Volunteer of the Year; Mark Lindsey, The Revolution FMO, Philanthropist of the Year and Desert Cab, Medical Hero of the Year.
