Annual fundraiser supports local agricultural education programs
Prairie du Sac, Wisconsin – May 30, 2019– Culver’s guests showed their support in a big way for agricultural education on Culver’s Scoops of Thanks Day, donating more than $104,000. The fundraiser is part of Culver’s Thank You Farmers® Project and involved guests donating $1 in exchange for a single scoop of Fresh Frozen Custard.
The proceeds raised across Culver’s over 700 restaurants will go to local FFA chapters and other agricultural organizations.
