Christopher Hamilton Legacy Society

The Christopher Hamilton Legacy Society was established in 2013 to recognize individuals who have made a commitment through their estate plans, to bring hope, strength and joy to the lives of brave, deserving children. These generous individuals provide the resources necessary to grant inspiring wishes to children now and in the future.

Named for the son of longtime supporters, Lee and Don Hamilton, the Christopher Hamilton Legacy Society honors the memory of Christopher Hamilton and the Hamilton family's legacy of generosity and commitment to making wishes come true for children with critical illnesses today and in the future.
