Busch giving year’s supply of beer to ‘GameDay’ fan for hospital donations

The Iowa State Cyclones fan whose “College GameDay” sign asking for beer money evolved into an amazing charitable drive will now be enjoying a year’s supply of suds as a reward for his efforts.

Carson King became a sensation this week thanks to his sign’s appearance during the telecast of the ESPN’s college football pregame show from Ames, Iowa, on Saturday. The sign, which read, “Busch Light Supply Needs Replenished,” included King’s Venmo account.

As King’s Venmo account accumulated thousands of dollars, the Cyclones fan decided he would donate all the funds to University of Iowa Stead Family Children’s Hospital.

As of Thursday, King had raised an astounding $67,000. With Venmo and Busch pledging to match all donations, the hospital will receive over $200,000.

Busch has since announced that it will also be giving King a year’s supply of Busch Light. Even better, the cans have been customized to feature King’s likeness.

King unsurprisingly is thrilled with Busch’s beer gesture.

No one could have possibly predicted how wonderfully this story has played out.
