Celebrating people who give unselfishly to help others in need – that is the true miracle of Christmas. Through the combined efforts of radio stations like Oldies 1150 CKOC and 102.9 K-LiteFM, along with the annual support of the East Hamilton Optimists Club we joined THE CHRISTMAS MIRACLE to help deliver the gift of Christmas to children and their families in Hamilton/ Halton and surrounding communities.
