An Illinois restaurant presented Great River Honor Flight with a four figure check on Saturday.

Two Doors Down owners Randy and Anne Whited and Jan Runner of Runner Farms made their $4,600 donation in Blandinsville, Illinois.

Those proceeds came from a BBQ festival held downtown on August 22.

To date they have donated a total of $17,735 to the program.

"I want those individuals to be honored for what they have sacrificed for, what they have done in the past for us to be where we are in today's world," Runner said.

Honor flight officials said future flights will be scheduled as restrictions due to the COVID-19 pandemic are relaxed.

Their goal is to get back on schedule in 2021.
