We are proud to participate again this year in Dining Out For Life on Thursday, April 26, 2012! When you dine at any of our three stores on this day, we’ll donate a portion of your purchase to Lifelong AIDS Alliance and the fight against illness and hunger in our community. Dining Out For Life is the perfect excuse to grab dinner with friends and family, plan on lunch with colleagues, or simply grab some fries and a shake to get your afternoon sugar buzz!
Dining Out For Life® is an annual fundraising event involving the generous participation of volunteers, corporate sponsors and restaurants. In exchange for their financial support, restaurants are listed in a city wide marketing campaign in an effort to increase customer traffic.
In 1991, Dining Out For Life® was created by an ActionAIDS volunteer in Philadelphia. Dining Out is now produced in 60 cities throughout the United States and Canada.
More than 3,000 restaurants donate a portion of their proceeds from this one special day of dining to the licensed AIDS service agency in their city. More than $3 million dollars a year is raised to support the missions of 60 outstanding HIV/AIDS service organizations throughout North America. With the exception of the annual licensing fee of $1,150, all money raised in these cities stays locally.
Lifelong AIDS Alliance is a non-profit organization that prevents the spread of HIV, provides support services for those whose lives are affected by HIV/AIDS, as well as delivers medically nutritious meals to individuals living with and without HIV/AIDs through the Chicken Soup Brigade Program. Based in Seattle, Lifelong advocates to expand resources for programs that benefit those at risk of and living with HIV/AIDS.
