Beer Guy Raised 3 Millions In Donations Through Beer Money

Carson King announced Tuesday afternoon that he'd raised a grand total of $2,950,000

Date: Oct 14, 2019

On Monday, Carson King two week long fundraiser for the University of Iowa Children's Hospital came up just short of his final goal of $3 million.

King announced Tuesday afternoon that he'd raised a grand total of $2,950,000.

But two days later that total was pushed to the $3,000,000 finish line thanks to a late donation from West Des Moines-based Doll Distributing, the local distributor for Busch Light in Central Iowa.

The company says 13 different distributors from across the state chipped in to make the final $41,000 gift.

King's fundraiser started before the Iowa-Iowa State football game in Ames when he held up a sign asking for money via Venmo to buy more Busch Light during ESPN's 'College GameDay'. The sign worked, with donations pouring into his account.

King quickly announced that he’d donate all the money sent to his Venmo account to the UI Children’s Hospital. Busch Light and Venmo both quickly announced they’d match whatever King raised.

Several other donors including RAGBRAI and Carson’s employer, Prairie Meadows, announced major gifts as well.

King says he plans to deliver the final $3 million check to the hospital on October 12th when the Hawkeyes host Penn State.
