Sizzler Celebrates 50th Anniversary with One-Cent Steak Dinners & $50,000 Children's Miracle Network Fund Drive

CULVER CITY, Calif. — The last time Sizzler offered a steak dinner for a penny, people lined up for hours. That was in 1959 when the steak chain celebrated its first anniversary.

Now Sizzler is doing it again as it commemorates its 50th anniversary. For two days only -- Jan. 21 and 22 -- Sizzler restaurants throughout California are thanking customers with the same offer: buy an eight-ounce steak dinner at regular price and get a second one for a penny.

Sizzler also is kicking off a $50,000 fundraising campaign for Children’s Miracle Network, which has nine member hospitals in California. For every anniversary steak dinner steak sold Jan. 21-22, Sizzler will make a contribution to Children's Miracle Network. Sizzler has committed to raising $50,000 during its anniversary year for the organization

"Sizzler's dedication to giving back to the communities they serve is
overwhelming. This fundraising effort will help make miracles happen for
sick and injured children throughout California," said Denise Bayles,
director of Children's Miracle Network for Children's Hospital Los Angeles.
"Sizzler is truly an example of an exemplary corporate citizen."

The first Sizzler opened in a converted trailer in Culver City in
January 1958. Today, the popular family steak restaurant can be found in 17
U.S. states, Puerto Rico, Australia, China, Japan, Korea, Singapore, Taiwan
and Thailand.

Children's Miracle Network is a non-profit organization dedicated to
saving and improving the lives of children by raising funds for children's
hospitals. Each year the 170 Children's Miracle Network hospitals provide
the finest medical care, life-saving research and preventative education to
help millions of kids overcome diseases and injuries of every kind.

This donation drive is a smart way for Sizzler to promote its 50th anniversary and be a good corporate citizen. It's especially nice to see the company supporting a charity that serves children in the communities that Sizzler also serves.
