Kirk Minihane and his fans stepped up for a local VFW hall in Florence, Massachusetts. One fan in particular, Steve From Providence, became the focus of fundraising efforts with Minihane challenging him to walk to the VFW Hall from his home in Providence, which is 88 miles away.
Steve (real last name Likely) netted around $4000 in donations during his walk. Kirk and the Minifans raised $30,000 for VFW Hall 8006.
“It’s been a long time since I’ve done something like that, really put my body to the test,” Steve, a Marine Corps veteran, told 22 News. “It was really worth it. I love the veterans, I love the VFWs, and I love the show.”
The money raised by The Kirk Minihane Show will be used for maintenance on the VFW. It will also be used to support other organizations in the area serving veterans.
