On Tuesday, May 21st, 64 Chicago area Culver’s restaurants will be participating in a fundraising effort to help raise money for Honor Flight Chicago; a non-profit organization dedicated to flying WWII veterans to Washington D.C to see the WWII Memorial built in their honor. The participating restaurants will donate 10% of all sales to Honor Flight Chicago to help them fly more WWII Heroes to Washington DC.
“We’re happy for the opportunity to help support Honor Flight Chicago in its mission and we hope our guests will too,” says Craig Culver, co-founder of the restaurant chain. “Men and women who put their lives on the line to protect our freedom are true heroes,” added Craig.
Honor Flight Chicago is part of a larger movement called the Honor Flight Network, with hubs across the country.
“This is an opportunity for us to give back to those who served for all of us,” adds Craig. “For many veterans time is running out to say thanks. We hope our guests will come to our restaurants to enjoy great food while supporting a great cause.”
To date, Honor Flight Chicago has flown 3,987 WWII veterans to visit their memorial in Washington, DC. Honor Flight Chicago has been recognized by the State of Illinois as a Home Front Hero for its patriotism, community spirit and willingness to go above and beyond the call of duty to support our brave troops and their families. Since 2005, the Honor Flight network, which is comprised of over 100 Honor Flight hubs throughout the country, has honored more than 100,000 WWII veterans by flying them all-expense-paid to Washington DC to thank them for their service to our country.
