Now, in it’s sixteenth year, this special event has become a Holiday tradition in our community.

To date, the event has raised $1 million dollars for children’s charities, bringing Christine Wilson’s spirit of giving to life.

We hope to raise at least $120,000 through this year’s concert to benefit children right here in central Ohio.

Join us!

Donna Glanzman, Christine’s Christmas Board Chair, talks about the event.


Christine's Wish Kids - Dr. Mark King plays piano as Anna receives her wish for a baby grand piano.

In 2017, the Christine’s Christmas Board was excited to unveil a new initiative called “Christine’s Wish Kids”. Anna received a baby grand piano through Make-A-Wish and celebrated in song alongside Mark King in the grande finale after a fabulous concert performance.

Anna represents the mission of Christine’s Christmas to change lives 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”.
