About Ben’s Lighthouse…

ben lighthouse

Ben’s Lighthouse was founded in honor of 6 year old Ben Wheeler, full of energy, love and light (and a dash of mischief), who lost his life at Sandy Hook School on December 14, 2012.

With a commitment to service through the arts, our mission is to help young people find their unique ability to make a difference in the world; to be beacons of hope and change; to be the light and lead the way.

We look forward to working together on this exciting and inspiring fundraiser!
