Culver's restaurants across the Midwest are supporting America's veterans, and customers can help out on Tuesday. Ten percent of all proceeds on Tuesday from 162 Culver's restaurants will go to Honor Flight.
Honor Flight is a non-profit group created to honor America's veterans by transporting them to Washington D.C. to visit their war memorials. Tuesday's fundraiser includes Culver's locations in Marquette Township, Escanaba, and Houghton.
They are open from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Tuesday, and the Culver's crew is ready to serve you anything on the menu to help out local veterans, according to Heather Mattson, Culver's General Manager.
"We feel that the Honor Flight is a very worthy cause, and we're just very excited to be able to give back to the people who have given so much to us and to our country," said Mattson.
All of the money raised Tuesday stays in the Upper Peninsula. The next Honor Flight is planned for the fall and is open to World War II and Korean War veterans. For more information on the Honor Flight program, go to www.upperpeninsulahonorflight.org.
Culver's stores also have put out donation buckets to collect change for the Honor Flight throughout this month. The custard flavor of the day for Tuesday is Caramel Peanut Buttercup.
