KEWASKUM, Wis. (March 10, 2022)Cousins Subs® in Kewaskum joined forces with the Kewaskum community to host a donation day for police officer Kevin Kohn, who suffered a debilitating stroke in the line of duty. On Wednesday, March 2, for every ham & provolone, tuna and turkey breast sub sold throughout the day, $8 was donated to Officer Kohn.

Between the number of subs purchased and additional monetary donations from customers, more than $23,000 was raised by the end of the one-day fundraising event.

“I’ve known Officer Kohn for years and when a friend reached out about holding a fundraiser for him, it was a no-brainer,” said Keith Novotny, Cousins Subs franchisee and owner. “I thought it was a great idea and knew it would be a huge day because the Kewaskum community always supports one another.”

At close of business, Cousins Subs sold 1,962 subs, resulting in a total donation of $15,696. Local community members contributed monetary donations totaling more than $7,500.
