Military Appreciation Night

We are pleased and proud to announce that despite tremendous obstacles and important changes to this year’s event, DAV’s generous partners at Golden Corral will hold an abbreviated version of Military Appreciation Night for the 20th consecutive year as their way to honor and celebrate those who have served.

Normally, as a way to celebrate and share the camaraderie among veterans and the communities they defended, this annual event culminates during a single night in November inside Golden Corral restaurants all over the country. However, for the safety of their staff and their guests Golden Corral has been forced to not hold a single night event this year. Instead, during the entire month of November, Golden Corral will distribute a ‘bonus card’ at in-store registers for one free meal and drink to all active-duty military members and veterans redeemable between November 1, 2020 and May 31, 2021.

Because Golden Corral still feels strongly about fundraising for DAV and promoting the partnership they have again provided the capability of a point-of-sale round-up feature at participating restaurants throughout November to raise money for DAV national programs and services. For nearly 20 years, Golden Corral restaurants and their guests together have raised more than $16 million dollars to support DAV chapters and departments. Military Appreciation Night is Golden Corral’s way of saying “Thank you!” to our nation’s veterans and active-duty personnel
