Participating Culver's restaurants will donate 10 percent of sales on Tuesday, May 20 to the Honor Flight Network, a nonprofit group that transports veterans to the national monuments.
“We’re happy for the opportunity to support the Honor Flight network 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 Culver.
Participating restaurants are:

Talons Out Hub is also hosting a community viewing of “Honor Flight: The Movie” free to the public at Kalamazoo's Wings Stadium on May 31 at 6 p.m.
