Golden Corral continued its 19-year tradition last week by serving a complimentary “thank you” meal to active duty and retired U.S. military personnel on Military Appreciation Night, in addition to raising funds through guest contributions for DAV (Disabled American Veterans) during the weeks leading up to the event.
As a result of Golden Corral’s system-wide fundraiser, the nation’s largest grill-buffet restaurant chain raised more than $1 million for DAV, a nonprofit organization that provides a lifetime of support for veterans of all generations and their families, in positive, life-changing ways.
“It is through the generous support of our guests that Golden Corral is able to help DAV continue its important work for our country’s veterans,” says Lance Trenary, president and chief executive officer of Golden Corral. “This past year, DAV impacted the lives of over 1 million veterans. We are honored to have the opportunity to host this fundraiser for such an empowering charity, and we look forward to continuing this tradition for many years to come.”
A tradition that started 19 years ago to celebrate our nation’s heroes, Golden Corral’s Military Appreciation Night has served nearly 6 million complimentary meals to military personnel and generated nearly $17 million in guest contributions to support community-based service initiatives for veterans through DAV.
Golden Corral’s legendary, endless buffet features an abundant variety of quality, made-from-scratch food for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Guests can choose from over 150 items including USDA grilled to order steaks, pork, seafood and shrimp alongside traditional favorites like pot roast, fried chicken, meatloaf, mashed potatoes, mac and cheese, fresh salads and more. At Golden Corral, there’s something for everyone, and guests can come together to eat as they please.
