(KMOX) - For a joke, Carson King showed up to a taping of College Gameday at Iowa State University with a sign begging for beer money. But he didn't realize just how seriously some would take him.
"Busch Light supply needs replenished," read the message that also included his Venmo information and was seen by ESPN viewers across the nation. Within 30 minutes he had a few hundred dollars in his account. Next thing he knew, the Iowa State fan had $1,000 in his account – now it has reached seven figures.
Not actually needing the cash, King decided to give it all to the University of Iowa Stead Family Children's Hospital. He was a guest on KMOX Thursday and explained further how his storied has continued.
