A generous Wisconsin couple has donated $100 million to Mayo Clinic.

Patricia and Robert Kerns used the old movie "Casablanca" to explain their contribution.

"His last words were, 'we'll always have Paris' and it's my hope with this center and other contributions here, that we can say we'll always have Mayo Clinic," said Robert Kerns.

$87 million will pay for a new center aimed at improving the way patients experience health care.

It will be named after the couple.
