This December, the Columbus community will gather together once again for Christine’s Christmas, an annual concert held in memory of Christine Wilson. This year’s event promises to be the best yet, with music from accomplished pianist Mark King, as well as local vocalists, an orchestra and a youth choir.

While Christine’s Christmas brings joy each year to those who attend the concert, its incredible impact extends well beyond the concert hall. To date, the event has raised more than $1 million dollars for children’s charities, bringing Christine Wilson’s spirit of giving to life. Now, in it’s second year, this special partnership with Make-A-Wish® Ohio, Kentucky & Indiana, an organization that grants wishes to local children battling life-threatening medical conditions, has become a Holiday tradition in the community.

We hope to raise at least $120,000 through this year’s concert to grant life-changing wishes for children right here in central Ohio.

This year, the Christine’s Christmas Board was excited to unveil a new initiative called “Christine’s Wish Kids”. Wish kid Anna received a wish and celebrated in song alongside Mark King in the Grande Finale after a fabulous concert performance. Anna, and these amazing children will represent the mission of Christine’s Christmas to grant life-changing wishes because of your generosity. Please view the following video to the right and witness your donations coming to life as Mark King represents the Board at Anna’s fabulous Wish Reveal, where she received a Baby Grand Piano. “It was an amazing moment” said wish kid Anna, I wished for a Baby Grand Piano because playing it helps me work through my treatment and sometimes I even sleep right beside it. It just helps me feel better”.

Please join us for an evening of music, celebration and joy! Believe, in the wonder that is!
