Culver’s Cruise for a Cause Helping DAV


A popular restaurant in Northern Michigan is once again helping disabled veterans with a classic car show.

After taking last year off because of the pandemic, Culver’s Restaurant on US 31 near Chums Corner in Grand Traverse County — will be hosting their “Cruise for a Cause” to benefit the Disabled American Veterans on Monday, July 26th.

Culver’s will donate $10 for every car registered plus 10 percent of all food sales from 5 to 9 PM to DAV.

The money will go towards vehicles, taking veterans to appointments and helping them with some financial needs.

Two years ago, more than 330 classic cars were on display and they expect to have even more of a turnout this year.

“We’ve done prior preparation. We got permission to mow properties between Culver’s and Grand Bay Marine.  So, hopefully we’ll have enough room for everybody to park, because it got pretty busy a couple of years ago… without partnerships like this in the area, I don’t know that we’d be able to provide that service to the veterans,” said Bob Roelofs of the Grand Traverse Chapter of the DAV.

Culver’s asks all classic car owners to make sure they register at the front of the restaurant beforehand.

There will be plenty of parking for those with disabilities and the drive thru will be open.

If you still want to eat at Culver’s, but want to avoid the car show, their East Bay location will be open.
