MILWAUKEE, Wis. (KTIV) – Monday marks one month since Carson King’s sign appeared in the background of ESPN’s College GameDay during the Iowa State vs. Iowa game.
That hand-drawn sign, which requested beer money sent via Venmo, was the start of a viral fundraiser that ended up donating $3 million to the University of Iowa’s Stead Family Children’s Hospital.
Now one month later, the National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum has unveiled a limited-edition bobblehead of Caron King.
The museum, working with King, will sell the bobbleheads for $25 each and five dollars from every one sold will be donated to the Stead Family Hospital.
When asked about being honored with a bobblehead, Carson said, “It’s amazing that a regular guy wanting to do something nice can spark a movement of generosity. To be honored with a bobblehead that will continue to help raise money for worthy projects is enough to leave a guy speechless.”
The bobblehead features Carson King, holding his sign that appeared in the background of ESPN’s College GameDay. The bobblehead was approved by Carson King.
The National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum houses the world’s largest collection of bobbleheads and features dozens of exhibits related to the history of bobbleheads, making of bobbleheads.
