For the third year in a row, Z99 brings the Alexandria area community "A Christmas Wish".  13 wishes were granted this year for families that needed a little extra help during the holiday season, 2 more than the previous year.

During the month of November, people can nominate someone that may have fallen on hard times or is struggling with cancer or an illness.  Based on the amount of sponsors, reciepients are chosen to be granted those wishes.

These wishes would not have been granted without the help of many area businesses, including Real Estate by Jo, Evolve Orthodontics, Billmark's Lakes Area Insurance, Greeley Plumbing Heating and Air Conditioning, Heartland Motor Company, Elden's Fresh Foods, Brother's Market, Legacy Hearing Centers, Iverson Insurance, Damaris Ganz with Central Minnesota Realty, Anne Wiener Personal Health Coach, and Carl Kvale with Edina Realty.

Stay tuned next fall when we're looking for nominations for next years Z99 A Christmas Wish reciepients.
