Making birthdays extra-happy for kids living in shelters.

Home: Welcome

No matter where kids are they deserve great birthday parties. 

Kids live for their birthday. But some years, they can't have the party of their dreams. At Candles & Cake, we bring birthday fun to children living in shelters. We organize food, cake, entertainment, loot bags, decorations. All the goodies. 

With our sponsors, we make magic happen, month after month. With donations and volunteers, we stretch every penny, but we never skimp on fun.


All our events are designed for the kids. But parents and staff love them too. 

What is Candles&Cake?

Be part of the fun. Donate to Candles & Cake. 

After 4 years of throwing parties with the Red Door Shelter, we understand what these events really cost. They are actually quite affordable. A birthday party with all the frills costs $600. 

This is where you come in! We need our donors to keep our parties going. We have wonderful community sponsors who generously give us discounts on birthday supplies. With a healthy nest egg, we can continue throwing birthday parties in shelters. The kids are asking for them!
