Golden Corral Restaurants Salute America’s Heroes with
Free Dinner on Military Appreciation Monday
Raleigh, NC (October, 2008) – On Monday, November 17,
2008 from 5 to 9 pm, all 485 Golden Corral restaurants across America will offer any person who has served in the
United States Military (including National Guard and Reserves) a free “thank you” dinner buffet and beverage - no
identification required. This will be the eighth annual “thank you” dinner for our nation’s heroes from Golden
Corral restaurants, who have provided over 1,835,000 complimentary meals to military personnel over the history of
the event. Golden Corral with their local media partners, guests and the Disabled American Veterans’ organization
have raised over $2,540,000 in contributions for the DAV state and local chapters.
For the second year, Golden Corral’s guests and restaurant
teams may send personal greetings to America’s military personnel on active duty overseas. From September 1 through
November 17, 2008, special postcards will be available at all Golden Corral restaurants for sending messages of
thanks and encouragement to the troops overseas. They will be delivered to our troops prior to the Holidays. In
2007, over 55,000 Military Appreciation post cards were delivered to military troops stationed overseas.
