Three McHenry County Culver’s restaurants will be among the 64 Chicago-area Culver’s 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.

Restaurants that will donate 10 percent of all sales on May 21 to Honor Flight Chicago are Culver’s of Crystal Lake, 501 Pingree Road; Culver’s of McHenry, 1101 Adams Drive; and Culver’s of Woodstock, 1620 W. Lake Shore Drive.

“We’re happy for the opportunity to help support Honor Flight Chicago in
its mission and we hope our guests will be too,” said Craig Culver,
co-founder of the restaurant chain.

“This is an opportunity for us to give back to those who served for all of
us,” he said.

To date, Honor Flight Chicago has flown 3,987 WWII veterans to visit their
memorial in Washington, D.C.

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 more than 100 Honor Flight hubs throughout the country, has honored more than 100,000 WWII veterans by flying them all-expenses-paid to Washington, D.C., to thank them for their service to our country.
