Post Commander Toni Cory awards Culver’s Manager Lea Bianucci and owner Eric Johnson along with other Post 290 American Legion members and their families.

Hendersonville American Legion Post 290 recently gave the Hendersonville Culver’s restaurant an award for their support of their Post and to the veterans the Legion serves. For nearly a year Culver’s has invited Post 290 to serve food to their patrons between 5pm and 8pm on the 22nd of each month. Culver’s donates to the Post a percentage of their proceeds during these hours. In addition Culvers allows the American Legion to have a donation jar available for additional contributions from the public. 

The 22nd of each month is a special day for the Legion. It signifies that 22 veterans still commit suicide each day. So this has given the Post a creative way to raise funds in order to help veterans as well as raising community awareness about this ongoing tragedy. Post 290’s motto is “0 > 22”. In other words, 0 suicides per day is greater than 22 suicides per day. Post 290 is blessed and grateful to have this money-raising opportunity that provides so much benefit to veterans in need.

Post 290 invites all veterans and patriots to join us on the 22nd of each month by having a great meal while taking a moment to stop by and visit with us. And don’t forget to have some custard for dessert, because it is simply the best!
