FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – Monday, November 21, 2005

Fairfax, VA — Glory Days Grill, a regionally owned and operated restaurant chain, held its eighteenth annual golf tournament to benefit the Sunshine Foundation on Tuesday, October 18, 2005 at the South Riding Golf Club in South Riding, Virginia. The tournament raised more than $15,000, which is an unprecedented achievement in the eighteen-year history of the Glory Days Grill Sunshine Foundation Golf Tournament. The Sunshine Foundation is the original wish granting organization founded in 1976 by former Philadelphia police officer, Bill Sample. Monies raised from the Tournament will fulfill the dreams of seriously ill, physically challenged and abused children, ages 3-21, nationwide.

Said Glory Days Grill Co-Founder, Richard Danker, "We are proud to support the Sunshine Foundation because they help so many children with different needs. We are also very appreciative of the support shown by the golf participants and tournament sponsors, especially our two major sponsors, First Horizon Bank (Tyson's Corner, VA) and PalMar Construction (Herndon, VA). Next year's tournament should be even bigger and better so we can keep spreading the sunshine!"

Operating 17 restaurants in three states, Glory Days Grill has been recognized for a variety of charitable contributions and fundraising efforts for the local communities and was a state winner and national finalist for the 2003 Restaurant Neighbor Award sponsored by the National Restaurant Association. Last year alone, the restaurant chain contributed more than $120,000 to the neighborhoods they serve through their Dining for Dollars program, youth and adult team sponsorships and other charitable efforts.
