Goldsmith Gallery Hits It Out Of The Park For Local Charity December 20, 2021 (0 comments)


Billings, MT—Goldsmith Gallery Jewelers donates a percentage of all sales from Black Friday to Christmas to Landon’s Legacy, a local organization dedicated to providing disabled children and adults the opportunity to play baseball.

The Landon’s Legacy Foundation was created to honor Landon Patrick Smith, who passed away in 2013 just two days before his 18th birthday. An avid baseball fan, Landon dreamed of hitting a grand slam home run, rounding the bases and sliding into home plate for a game win, being on a team, and seeing his beloved New York Yankees play.

Created after his passing in order to keep Landon’s spirit alive in the community, the Landon’s Legacy Foundation will positively affect those faced with similar challenges. The organization partnered with the Kiwanis Club and Parks and Recreation to create Billings’ first special-needs baseball field, known as a “Miracle League” field. It is a custom-designed, latex-free rubberized turf field that accommodates wheelchairs and other adaptive equipment. The Miracle League field will serve children and adults who suffer from any physical or mental disabilities which causes them to be excluded from other baseball leagues.

Goldsmith Gallery this year achieved its fundraising goal on behalf of Landon’s Legacy early: owners Scott and Kelly Wickam, together with next-gen jewelers Haylie and Brayden Wickam (top image), proudly presented the organization with a check for $25,000 on December 10.

“We made our goal! Thank you to all of our wonderful friends that have trusted us to put a little sparkle in your lives this year,” said Scott Wickam on Facebook.

The late Landon Smith loved baseball. Landon's Legacy is dedicated to helping special-needs children and adults be able to play with special adaptive fields and equipment.
