How can I hyperlink my DIV ?  (neither href and onclick are working)

For some reason, I don't seem to be able to hyperlink the banner image that I have in my righthand column (which is a DIV with text in it -- NOT an image):


The DIV that I'm trying to link / make clickable is called "#banner_image"

I've tried using regular HREF tags as well as onclick="location.href=" ... but it seems that no matter what I try, .. I can't make the DIV clickable.  Why?  How can I achieve this?
