To help remove barriers for students impacted by MS, Golden Corral raises funds for the MS Scholarship Program. The initiative launched in 2011 has raised more than $288,000 and funded 129 scholarships.
You can help support the mission to provide college scholarships by dining at your local Golden Corral during the month of August or sending a check directly to our office designating Golden Corral in the memo line - 3101 Industrial Drive, Raleigh, NC 27609. There’s no better time to dine out and do good! Participating Golden Corral restaurants are located in Statesville, Shelby, Gastonia, Charlotte, Monroe, Mooresville, Hendersonville, and Matthews, NC as well as Spartanburg, Anderson, Greenville, Easley, Aiken, and Rock Hill, SC.
"As co-chair of my high school's annual scholarship program, I get to see hands on how a scholarship can open a door for a student in financial need,” says Woody Fox, a Golden Corral franchisee. “I read all of our applications every year and it is amazing that there are so many bright young people in our high schools who can't afford the average cost of a college education. We want to make a real difference in the lives of these families impacted by multiple sclerosis.”
“Golden Corral is making it possible to make sure that MS doesn’t stand in the way of an education,” said Kristina Fransel McGraw, Chapter President of the Greater Carolinas Chapter. “There aren’t many scholarships out there for people whose lives are touched by MS, and it is partners like Golden Corral that are making a tangible difference in their lives.”
Because of Golden Corral’s community leadership, 41 students were recipients of scholarships in 2015.
We invite your support by volunteering at a local Golden Corral during the campaign. Contact Alicia Hyatt at 704-612-2705 or Alicia.email@example.com.
