Tony Roma’s FUN-raises to Support Red Nose Day

Fans are urged to “Get Your Rib Face On” to support Red Nose Day charities on May 26th

ORLANDO, Fla. – May 20, 2015 – Romacorp, Inc., the parent company of Tony Roma’s, announces its support of Red Nose Day on May 26, a day dedicated to raising money for children in need. For every full rack of world-famous Baby Back Ribs sold at Tony Roma’s restaurants in the U.S. on May 26, the company will donate $1 to the Red Nose Day charities, an amount that pays for one meal for a child in a homeless shelter.

“Families are the core of our business, and children from communities around the world enjoy the one-of-a-kind Tony Roma’s experience in our restaurants every day, so we’re delighted to support this wonderful cause,” said Jim Rogers, Chief Marketing Officer for Romacorp, Inc. “While enjoying our world-famous Baby Back Ribs, you might even find yourself wearing a red nose– a red nose made of our signature BBQ sauce – since diving into our incredible ribs gives our fans what we call a Tony Roma’s rib face!”

Red Nose Day is celebrated through fun and laughter to raise money for children living in poverty throughout the world. In the past 25 years, Red Nose Day has raised more than $1 billion globally. This is the second Red Nose Day to be celebrated in the United States. In 2015, the event raised $23 million in the U.S. The money donated on Red Nose Day will be distributed to nonprofit organizations in the U.S., Africa, Asia and Latin America.
