Fairfax, VA — Glory Days Grill, a regionally owned and operated restaurant chain, held its seventeenth annual golf tournament to benefit the Sunshine Foundation on Thursday, October 28, 2004 at the Bull Run Golf Club in Haymarket, Virginia.

We are also very appreciative of the support shown by the golf participants and tournament sponsors, especially our two major sponsors, PalMar Construction and BB&T Bank. Next year's tournament should be even bigger and better so we can keep spreading the sunshine!"
