Milwaukee Brat House honors bartender killed in hit-and-run crash with donation

WAUWATOSA, Wis. (CBS 58) -- Christmas Eve marks one year since the unsolved hit-and-run death of a Milwaukee bartender. Monday night, Dec. 21, her former co-workers are honoring her memory.

James Hanson worked at Milwaukee Brat House on Old World Third Street, and the restaurant will make a donation to Hope House -- one of Hanson's favorite charities. 

Hanson was walking her dogs in Bay View Christmas Eve of 2019, when witnesses say she was hit by a driver. The driver still has not been caught. 

Local bars have raised thousands of dollars in reward money for information leading to an arrest.
