You may not have heard, but Badgers' coach Gary Andersen met his wife, Stacey, while working at a burger joint as a teenager in Utah. Yesterday he went back in time a little bit, stopping by the Culver's near East Towne Mall in Madison to help out during their "Day of Giving." Ten percent of all proceeds from all Culver's sales at every location in Wisconsin on May 21 went towards the Badger Honor Flight.
Badger Honor Flight is a regional affiliate of the national Honor Flight Network. The purpose of the Honor Flight Network is to ensure that WWII and terminally ill veterans from any war have the opportunity to see the memorials that have been erected in their honor. The Honor Flight Network provides all amenities to the veterans, including all transportation, meals and lodging.
Imagine the surprise on these people's faces as the UW football coach handed them their butter burgers.
