ENTERCOM Active Rock KISW, in partnership with ELYSIAN BREWING, has donated $300,000 to PUGET SOUND FISHER HOUSE and JOINT BASE LEWIS-MCCHORD (JBLM) FISHER HOUSES to honor and assist our veterans and active military personnel. KISW listeners, known as Rockaholics, and beer drinkers in WESTERN WASHINGTON have been donating to FISHER HOUSE since 2009.
"We consider it an honor to give back to the men and women who have given so much for this country," afternoon show The Mens Room host MILES MONTGOMERY said. "The fact that we could do that through beer is an added bonus"
"It’s obvious, it’s necessary, and it’s our privilege. THE FISHER HOUSE is an unsung hero," added Mens Room host STEVE "THE THRILL" HILL.
"It is impossible to put into mere words what the relationship between FISHER HOUSE, ELYSIAN and The Mens Room means to us," VAPS FISHER HOUSE Dir. CECILE BAGROW said. This isn’t just about the overwhelming amount of funds received through the project; it is also about the love."
