Christine’s Christmas is an inspiring holiday concert dedicated to the memory of Christine Wilson, a young woman who tragically lost her life in a house fire near The Ohio State University campus in 2003. Christine was thoughtful and giving and had a way of bringing joy to everyone around her. She cared deeply for children and wished to work with them someday, teaching and improving their lives. Each year, the Columbus community gathers to celebrate Christine’s legacy with one of the best Christmas concerts in central Ohio. The concert features accomplished pianist and singer Mark King, the Wilsons’ neighbor and an associate professor of radiology at OSU, among other local talents. To date, the event has raised $1,000,000 for children’s charities, bringing Christine’s spirit of giving to life. In 2016, Christine’s dream of impacting the lives of children entered into a new phase where the event will benefit Make-A-Wish® Ohio, Kentucky & Indiana, an organization that grants wishes to local children battling life-threatening medical conditions.
