This month, Culver's of Carol Stream, 290 Schmale Road, is partnering with Special Olympics Illinois with several in-store activities planned, most notably the fourth annual "ButterBurgers & Badges" fundraising event from 4 to 8 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 30.

"ButterBurgers & Badges" will feature local law enforcement officers providing table service for guests dining inside, and also delivering the chain's famed burgers and fresh frozen custard desserts to those visiting the drive-thru.

The officers will collect tips for their service, which along with one dollar for every purchase of any size Culver's Concrete Mixer, will benefit Special Olympics.

In addition, local Special Olympics athletes will be on-hand to meet and greet guests and sign autographs.

"ButterBurgers & Badges" is part of a month-long initiative by more than 30 Culver's locations across the Chicago area that includes participating stores proudly displaying "Change for Champions" donation canisters near counter areas.

"Culver's is proud to partner with Special Olympics Illinois," says Culver's of Carol Stream owner Amy Adams. "Many of our restaurants currently employ team members who are also Special Olympic athletes, and that brings us an even closer connection to this great organization."

Funds raised will help Special Olympics Illinois continue its programs that provide year-round sports training and competition for children and adults with intellectual disabilities.

This event continues its support of Special Olympics.
