OWA CITY, Iowa - Carson King will donate the money he raised for the University of Iowa Stead Family Children's Hospital in Iowa City later today
The Cyclone fan first gained national attention for holding a sign asking for beer money on ESPN at the Cy-Hawk game last month in Ames. Instead of keeping the online donations, Carson chose to start a fundraiser for the hospital through his Venmo account.
In total, $3 million dollars came in, including matching donations from Venmo and Anheuser-Busch.
According to KCRG-TV9, a check presentation is set for 4:30 p.m. this afternoon at the Gerdin Family Lobby of the children's hospital.
