Dine Out For Life

On April 26, you can help those affected by HIV/AIDS in your city simply by dining out at a favorite restaurant.

The annual Dining Out for Life is a unique way to bring people together over food to support the cause. More than 3,000 restaurants nationwide will donate a generous percentage of the day’s receipts to a local AIDS service organization. An expected $4 million will be raised in just one day of dining.

Seattle is one of the 43 cities holding Dining Out for Life events. For a list of participating restaurants and to make a reservation, go to www.diningoutforlife.com.
