Dine Out, Fight AIDS!
April 20, 2017
We are looking forward to seeing you at a participating Delaware Valley restaurant for this year’s big night! You just go out to eat and the restaurant donates 33% of your check to Action Wellness and other area service organizations!
Close to 200 restaurants and thousands of diners will participate in the biggest dining event of the year! They truly make a difference by helping us make sure that no one faces AIDS alone, and their participation will impact thousands of men, women, and children infected with HIV and AIDS in very real ways – medical care, life-saving medications, housing, energy assistance, education and prevention. Find a participating restaurant here.
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 Action Wellness (formerly ActionAIDS) volunteer in Philadelphia. Dining Out For Life is now produced in more than 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 $4 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.
