WHAT: Dining Out for Life
WHEN: Thursday, April 25
WHERE: Nearly 100 Bay Area Restaurants
Diners across the Bay Area are making their reservations for Dining Out for Life, the annual one-day fundraising event to benefit local HIV/AIDS prevention and care services. On April 25, nearly 100 Bay Area restaurants will donate 25% of their gross sales to support the free programs of San Francisco AIDS Foundation.
“Dining Out for Life is a fun and delicious way to make a real difference in the fight against HIV/AIDS in our community,” said Neil Giuliano, CEO of San Francisco AIDS Foundation. “When you dine out at one of our participating restaurants on April 25, you are helping to improve the health of the thousands of clients who come through our doors every year. You are also playing an important role in helping San Francisco to become the first U.S. city to stop the transmission of HIV. We are making great progress toward that goal and we will make it a reality.”
The evening also features opportunities for diners to enter a raffle for exciting prizes including a trip to Costa Rica, San Francisco Giants tickets, a shopping spree at Gap, two round-trip tickets on Virgin America, passes to Kabuki Spa, and much more.
This year marks the 12th year of Dining Out for Life in the Bay Area. Since it first began in 2002 it 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.
