NEW! Candlelight Gives Back Fundraising Opportunities

Candlelight Inn is kicking off a new fundraising program that will allow groups to earn 10% of all local Candlelight Inn sales during a certain time period on a designated evening. We'll partner with organizations such as non-profits; church groups; relief groups, school groups tied to music, drama, speech, academics and athletics, etc.; civic organizations; and families dealing with terminal illnesses, catastrophic events or losses. If your group is not listed here, contact Community Engagement Director Melissa Ryan-Bergstrom at 815-625-2600 or email
