Candlelighters is pleased to announce a fundraising musical performance by local artist Jeff Rogers. On Wednesday, August 5th, at 7pm, Jeff will perform live on Candlelighters Facebook Page ( with donations coming to Candlelighters.

Jeff Rogers is a singer-songwriter from Ottawa, Canada. His influences include Stevie Wonder, B.B. King, Donny Hathaway, Ray Charles and Jamiroquai.

Having discovered the musical potential of their son early on, Jeff’s parents encouraged him to develop it further by providing him with his first piano and music lessons. Since then, Jeff has taken up saxophone, guitar, and developed his voice to accompany his piano playing. Now predominantly a singer and piano player, he has earned repute as a dueling piano player based out of Ottawa as well as a member of the southern rock groups The Cooper Brothers and Silver Creek.

Please join us for an evening of great music. Your donation will have a direct impact in the lives of children with cancer, and their families, right here in the National Capital and surrounding region.

Please help support children and youth with cancer by donating to Candlelighters. Thank you for your support.

A special thanks to Jeff for helping make a difference in the lives of children with cancer through this Facebook Live concert. (
