Dining out for Life

Dining Out For Life

Dining Out for Life is a local fundraising initiative for HIV/AIDS service organizations throughout the United States and Canada. On Tuesday, April 28, 2015, over 100 top Bay Area restaurants will donate 25% of the day’s proceeds to support the free and local prevention and support services at San Francisco AIDS Foundation. This is San Francisco’s 15th year celebrating Dining Out For Life, a way to raise awareness and support for the fight against HIV/AIDS in our local community.

You’re invited to join our Ambassador team and host an evening at a top Bay Area Restaurant with your friends and family. Ambassadors are matched to restaurants in groups of two—sign up with a friend and host the evening together. After everyone enjoys a fun night, 25% of their bill is donated to support San Francisco AIDS Foundation’s life-saving work.
