In Recognition of Memorial Day— Mundelein Culver’s Restaurant to Host Fundraiser to Benefit Lake County Honor Flight

On Tuesday, May 23, 2017, the Mundelein Culver's restaurant is partnering with all Culver’s restaurants across Lake County, to participate in a fundraiser for Lake County Honor Flight. Participating locations will donate 10% of their sales on that day to Lake County Honor Flight. Mundelein residents are encouraged to participate in this fundraising effort. As the country prepares to celebrate Memorial Day, this fundraiser is an excellent way to honor and remember those who have served our country.

Lake County Honor Flight transports America's veterans to Washington D.C. to visit those memorials dedicated to honor their service and sacrifice. Lake County Honor Flight works diligently to raise funds so trips are available to veterans at no cost. Priority is given to the oldest veterans or those in declining health, so veterans from the Korean and Vietnam conflicts are also included.

According to Program Director and Founder Paula Carballido, the Lake County hub is one of 131 hubs serving veterans in 45 states. The local organization has coordinated nine flights to Washington D.C. since 2013 and has taken a total of 175 veterans on their tribute flight in the last three years. The cost to sponsor one veteran can range from $700 to $825, and cost per flight can range from $20,000 to over $37,000.

Lake County Honor Flight is based in the City of North Chicago - a proud military host community that is home to Naval Station Great Lakes. Lake County Honor Flight is a 501©(3) non-profit organization. All donations are tax-deductible.
