Culver’s Fundraiser For Honor Flight Northeast Indiana

Wednesday, October 26th, four Fort Wayne Culver’s locations as well as Culvers in Warsaw, will host a fundraiser for Honor Flight. Culvers will donate 20% of sales from the entire day, 10 a.m. – 10 p.m. to Honor Flight Northeast Indiana.

The Culver’s five franchises are owned by three independent groups. Bob and Sandy Giesler own Dupont and Washington Center locations; Maureen Hamilton is the owner of the West Jefferson Culvers; Matt and Melyssa Lennington co-own the Stellhorn and Warsaw locations. The five franchises combined have raised more than $45,000 to date in store sales and donations at the stores.

Culver’s West Jefferson location owner Maureen Hamilton states “It is one of our greatest pleasures to have the opportunity to support Honor Flight Northeast Indiana. Nobody deserves a day of caring more than the men and women who served our country.”

Ninety-five percent of all donations go directly towards the veterans’ trips. Honor Flight NE Indiana, Inc. is a volunteer, nonprofit, 501(c)3 organization. It is Honor Flight Northeast Indiana’s mission to serve those who would like to have the opportunity to see their memorials that were built in their honor.
