|Send Busch Beer Or Cash
What started out as a football fan's ploy to grab the attention
of the cameras at ESPN's College GameDay has turned into
something much bigger, better and greener: a donation of
thousands of dollars to a children's hospital. Carson King, 24,
arrived at the College GameDay stages in Ames, Iowa, for the
University of Iowa -Iowa State University football game last
weekend. With him, he had a sign that said. "Busch Light
supply needs replenished," with his Venmo address.
He had a prime position right behind show commentator Kirk
Herbstreit for much of the program, and King and his sign
received plenty of airtime. Afterward his phone blew up with
texts. King received $400 within an hour. When his Venmo
account reached $600 in beer money donations, King decided
that after he deducted the price of one case of Busch Light
for himself, he would donate the rest of the donations to the
University of Iowa Stead Family Children's Hospital.
, Busch Beer saw his tweet and decided to join in the cause
and match the donations. To date over $200,000 has been
donated which Busch not only matched but they threw in a
year's supply of beer for King. The popular-in-Iowa beer
brand is helping to solidify King's status as an "Iowa legend"
by making sure this phrase appears beneath an image of King
on every beer can in his year's supply.

"Here's to beer and alcohol, the rose colored
glasses of life."
"The only way that I could figure they could improve
upon Coca-Cola, one of life's most delightful elixirs,
is to put bourbon in it."
“I pray you, do not fall in love with me, for I am
falser than vows made in ale and wine.”
“Don't be such a square. Everybody who's
anybody drinks loads of beer.”
“Wine and hearty ale makes daily living easier, less hurried,
with fewer tensions and more tolerance.”
“Beer is kind of a hobby, vodka is a profession.”
“My own experience has been that the tools I need
formy trade are paper, tobacco, food,a little whiskey,
and lots of beer..”
The only way to keep your health is to eat what you
don't want, drink what you don't like, and do what
you'd rather not.
