Culver’s restaurants in four Midwest states have raised over $100,000 for the Honor Flight Network, a non-profit group created to honor America’s veterans by transporting them to Washington D.C. to visit their war memorials.
One hundred seventy restaurants in Wisconsin, Illinois, Michigan and Northwest Indiana sponsored a fundraising event in which 10% of sales went to ten separate hubs of the Honor Flight Network.
“I’m so happy for our war veterans who will benefit from this fundraising event,” said Craig Culver, CEO and co-founder. “I want to thank all of our guests who supported Culver’s in this effort, our franchisees who made it happen in our restaurants and of course all those involved with the Honor Flight Network; well done!”
The Honor Flight Network gives top priority to senior Veterans such as World War II and Korean War survivors and those terminally ill who fought in later conflicts.
