I've always wondered what's in the "cup of cheer" in the Burl Ives Christmas classic "Holly Jolly Christmas." Is it eggnog? Is it hot cocoa? This Tuesday, it's neither!

On Tuesday, December 11 we're teaming up with our friends from Lost Grove Brewing for a very special "Merry Hour" benefiting LITE-FM's Christmas Wish!  The brewery, located at 1026 S La Pointe Street in Boise, has chosen Christmas Wish as their beneficiary for their charity giving program called "Powerful Pints!"

Stop by Lost Grove anytime 12-10 p.m. and grab a pint of your favorite beer, wine or local hard cider (I recommend Lost Grove's Teddy Bear Picnic Pale Ale) and 50% of the proceeds will go directly to help us brighten up the season for some of our Treasure Valley neighbors who've fallen on hard times around the holiday through our Christmas Wish program.

Last year we were able to grant 64 wishes like making sure a family who knew their dad had terminal cancer got to spend as many special moments with his kids before he passed away the following summer and a family where the primary bread winner suffered a heart attack right after Thanksgiving meaning money would be going toward quality medical care rather than presents for the kids.

We're off to a great start in 2018 and know that we spread even more hope around the Treasure Valley with your help, so gather up your coworkers for a post work "Merry Hour" and help us end Christmas Wish with a bang!

Can't make it out on Tuesday? For rest of the week, Lost Grove will designate one of their tap as LITE-FM's Christmas Wish beer! $2 of every pint they sell from that tap will go toward our efforts to make the holidays merry and bright!
