GREENWOOD VILLAGE, Colo., Dec 27, 2010 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Red Robin Gourmet Burgers, Inc.

To celebrate Red Robin's grand opening and demonstrate its ongoing commitment to the Bowie community, the new restaurant has partnered with the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children (NCMEC) to host a Burgers With A Heart(R) fundraiser during grand opening week from January 10 to 16.
