Christmas Wish

Christmas Wish

Hartford, CT, September 25, 2014 – Choice Merchant Solutions and JohnPaul Golino are thrilled to  announce that they will inaugurate their relationship with the Christmas Wish program, hosted by Lite 100.5 WRCH, at Lake Compounce in Southington, CT on December 5th, 2014, (snow date Dec. 12th) to give back to the community that has been so supportive.


The Christmas Wish program will be celebrating its tenth anniversary of paying it forward this winter by providing much needed items to families across Connecticut. Founded by Mike Stacy (of “Allan, Mike, and Mary”) of Lite 100.5 WRCH, the program has been granting wishes for food, gifts, and clothing since 2005. The event is hosted at their radio studios in Farmington, CT and headlined by the arrival of Santa and Mrs. Clause in a horse drawn carriage.

JohnPaul Golino, CEO of Choice Merchant Solutions and serial entrepreneur, was instrumental in initiating this charitable opportunity in the Greater Hartford area. Born and raised in Wethersfield, JohnPaul has been involved in the community for over half a decade, and was available to speak about his upcoming contribution to the Christmas Wish program:

I’ve been a member of this community for my entire life and the people have always supported me. I’m happy that I am in a position to do something for them. My employees and I will be there for the actual event; I’m excited to put some smiles on some faces.

I would like to invite anyone who is involved in the community – and especially those that aren’t – to donate food or clothing or anything you can, and come to Lake Compounce on the fifth to volunteer.

– JohnPaul Golino

Choice Merchant Solutions’ staff is eager to get involved in the event, and will be on site December 5th led by JohnPaul. Since this is an annual event, we are looking forward to many years of giving, volunteering, and enabling other charitable organizations to give back to the community.
