WHAT: Dining Out for Life
WHEN: April 26
WHERE: More than 100 Bay Area Restaurants
Tables are filling up across San Francisco and the greater Bay Area for Dining Out for Life, the annual one-day fundraising event to benefit local HIV/AIDS prevention and care services. On April 26, more than 100 Bay Area restaurants will donate 25% of their gross sales to support the programs of San Francisco AIDS Foundation.
“This is a fantastic opportunity to gather your family and friends at one of our many participating restaurants to have fun, enjoy a good meal, and support a very worthy cause,” said Neil Giuliano, CEO of San Francisco AIDS Foundation. “There remains a critical need for our free, local services to stop the spread of HIV and make sure everyone has access to proper care. Dining Out for Life helps us ensure that all of our programs remain strong and stable for the thousands of people we serve each year.”
The evening also features opportunities for diners to enter a raffle for exciting prizes including a trip to Costa Rica, San Francisco Giants tickets, wine from Layer Cake Winery, gift certificates from GAP and Levi’s, and much more.
This year marks San Francisco’s 11th year hosting Dining Out for Life, started by STOP AIDS Project and now co-produced with San Francisco AIDS Foundation. Since it first began in the city in 2002, Dining Out for Life has raised more than one million dollars to support local HIV/AIDS services. More than 50 cities across the United States and Canada participate in the special fundraising event. In the last five years, Dining Out for Life has raised more than $17.2 million dollars for the fight against HIV/AIDS in North America.

No city experienced epidemic levels of HIV faster than San Francisco. At San Francisco AIDS Foundation, we work to end the epidemic where it first took hold, and eventually everywhere. Established in 1982, our mission is the radical reduction of new infections in San Francisco. Through education, advocacy, and direct services for prevention and care, we are confronting HIV in communities most vulnerable to the disease. We refuse to accept that HIV transmission is inevitable.
