Please consider a donation to our Chelsea's Wish Project.Each year, The Chelsea Hutchison Foundation grants all major expense paid trips for families to attend Epilepsy Awareness Educational Day and Disneyland. With the current COVID-19 situation, our Spring and weekly Bingo fundraising efforts have come to a screeching halt. These fundraisers are what have funded Chelsea’s Wish Trips in the past. Our Spring Gala has been rescheduled for July 25th and while we are hopeful, we will still be able to host our gala, it comes after we have typically named our winners.
Over the past 7 years, The Chelsea Hutchison Foundation has provided 82 families with Chelsea's Wish Trips. The two day educational expo is like no other. Families have direct access to top Epileptologists, epilepsy centers, hospitals and vendors, specially selected to arm families with knowledge and power. Add a day inside the Disneyland Park with thousands of others in purple tshirts and all of a sudden lives open up and families realize they are not alone. Our families stay, learn and play together for 5 days and develope life-long friendships. We watch children and young adults light up as they realize they are in good company. These trips are lifechaging - so much more than just a family vacation. As a special bonus, The Chelsea Hutchison Foundation provides an additional day inside the California Adventure Park.
