It’s not too late to book a table for the 2019 Dining Out for Life. The annual event raises funds for community-based organizations that help people living with and affected by HIV. Raising money to fight AIDS has never been easier—or more fulfilling…*burp.*
Participating is super simple: Restaurants in cities across the nation donate a portion of the day’s sales to local HIV-related groups. All you have to do is find out which eateries in your city participate and on which day. Then make your reservations and dig in.
Visit DiningOutForLife.com to research your options. Most cities will hold events this Thursday, April 25. Notable exceptions include San Francisco (Tuesday, April 23) and Atlanta (Wednesday, April 24). Nashville held its event last Tuesday, April 16.
In 2018, more than 3,000 restaurants raised more than a total of $4.1 million, which benefited more than 50 local HIV service organizations.
The event is sponsored by Subaru and Ponaman Healthcare Consulting. To follow the event on social media, check out @diningout4life on Instagram and Facebook and @dineout4life on Twitter.
Last year, POZ spoke with event spokesperson Ted Allen of the Food Network’s Chopped and the original Queer Eye for the Straight Guy. To sink your teeth into that delicious interview, read “Ted Allen Dishes About Dining Out for Life and a Certain ‘Queer Eye’ Cutie.”
