NTA Encourages You to Dine for America
October 4, 2005 – Wednesday, Oct. 5 the restaurant industry will participate in a nationwide dine out event, Dine for America, to help raise donations for the American Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund. Participating restaurants will donate all or a portion of the day’s sales to the Red Cross.

"When our nation experienced the unimaginable and tragic events of September 11, the nation’s restaurants quickly mobilized and offered assistance for the victims and families of those who suffered that terrible tragedy with Dine for America. Today, we call upon our industry and the public to once again show their support for our fellow Americans, the victims and families who were impacted by the catastrophic events of Hurricane Katrina," President and Chief Executive Officer of the National Restaurant Association Steven Anderson, said.

Anderson added, "We have seen an unbelievable outpouring of support from restaurants across the nation who want to participate in this national effort. The momentum during this industry-wide event is incredible, and will have a tremendous impact in helping those affected by Hurricane Katrina."
