    It means "to drink a toast to someone."

    It can also be a "command":

    first person plural:
    "Let us all raise our glasses to Lizzie for being such a good student."

    Or:

    second person singular or plural
    "[You] Raise your class to Lizzie..."

    Raise your glass means to "cheers"

    When people raise their glasses at a festive gathering, they mean to toast someone or something. 比方说,为我们两个国家的友谊干杯!

    Meaning "Cheers". Several examples:
    Prepare to raise your glass to some cheering news!
    I'd ask you to raise your glass and join me in a toast to the health of all our friends here.
