Dining Out For Life is gearing up yet again for their annual international fundraising efforts — see when your city’s many restuarants will be aiding their important cause.
The HIV/AIDS fundraising initiative was first created in 1991 by an ActionAIDS volunteer in Philadelphia. It was a simple yet effective concept, have participating restaurants donate a portion of their proceeds during a specified day to financially help the organization’s HIV/AIDS fighting efforts.
Fortunately, the simple yet brilliant initiative blossomed into an international fundraiser in which restaurants throughout the US and Canada donate proceeds from their sales to local HIV/AIDS fighting organizations in their communities. To date, 3,000+ restuarants participate in the yearly fundraiser.
In fact, Dining Out For Life’s numbers are quite impressive. Currently, there are over 50 HIV/AIDS service organizations throughout the US and Canada that receive benefits on behalf of the fundraiser. A calucalated 300,000 people contribute to the cause and an incredible $4.25 million is raised each year.
This year’s 28th Dining Out For Life will commence in March of 2019 with Vancouver/Whistler Canada filling tummies and hearts on Thursday, March 14. Click here to check out the over 40 participating restuarants that will be donating 25% of their foods sales for that day to the local HIV organization A Loving Spoonful.
