Gov. and first lady Otter to help light state Christmas tree Monday
Governor Otter and first lady Lori Otter will be helping to light Idaho's Capitol Christmas Tree on Monday, Nov. 26.
“We are looking forward to a fun evening to kick off the holiday season with good cheer, great music and charitable giving,” Gov. Otter said. “This is a wonderful time for families and friends to gather together for good company and goodwill.”
The lighting will also help the governor and first lady help Make-A-Wish Idaho kick off its Season of Giving campaign, in an effort to raise enough funds to grant wishes to Idaho children with life-threatening illnesses.
“So often, we take our good health for granted. We need to be aware of the challenges that families face on a daily basis when they have a child with a serious medical problem,” the first lady said. “I am encouraging everyone to help lighten the load and brighten a family’s spirits by making a contribution toward a child’s wish.”
