Little boy donates birthday money to Mitchell International Airport
he hopes to be a pilot or politician one day
MILWAUKEE-Julian Her zing-Burkard asked friends and family to donate cash instead of giving him presents for his 10th birthday.
On Wednesday he handed over $297 to Mitchell International Airport.
"I love the airport, I love airplanes," Julian told CBS 58 News. "I love Milwaukee and I had this thought how about for my birthday I donate all the money for the airport expansion."
Last birthday, Julian's gift was a meeting with Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett to discuss the importance of expanding service at Mitchell.
"Because I got so much stuff that I don't need any more. So, I thought well how about the airport gets something."
