Looking for Local Heroes: Culver's Celebrating Locals Who Make Their Communities a Better Place

Culver's Guests Can Nominate Their Hero for a Chance to Win $5,000

PRAIRIE DU SAC, WI--(Marketwire - Nov 8, 2011) - To celebrate everyday heroes who exemplify hometown values by making a difference in their communities, Culver's is launching the Hometown Hall of Fame Contest. Between November 7 and December 5, guests are encouraged to share the story of their local hero for a chance for their nominee to win $5,000.

"We're proud to support our local communities throughout the year," says Craig Culver, co-founder and CEO of Culver's. "The Hometown Hall of Fame contest recognizes heroes who go above and beyond to make a positive impact. This contest is our way of saying 'thank you for all you do.'"

For the Hometown Hall of Fame, a hero can be defined as just about anyone who makes a difference; a firefighter, police officer, teacher, nurse, volunteer or a parent. Both the nominator and the nominee must be at least 18 years of age.

Guests can read the stories of the heroes on Culver's Facebook page, vote on a daily basis and share the contest via Facebook, Twitter and email. Culver's will select the winner from the top 20 vote-getters. This local hero will receive $5,000 from Culver's to help keep up the good work in their community. For highlighting the efforts of their hero, the person who nominates the winner will receive a $350 Culver's gift card to enjoy a year of delicious meals.
