Press Release – Dining Out For Life

April 25, 2010

I’ve seen this at a couple restaurants in the Kalamazoo area now, so I thought I’d pass it along.  There are restaurants in both Kalamazoo and Grand Rapids participating.   The following comes from the website

Dining Out For Life® Offers Satisfying Ways to Raise Funds for HIV/AIDS
Thursday, April 29th in Over Fifty Cities

On Thursday, April 29th, 2010, an estimated 250,000 people will dine out to fight AIDS in over fifty cities across the U.S. and Canada. Nearly 3,000 restaurants participate in Dining Out For Life® hosted by Subaru by donating a generous percentage of proceeds from the day’s meals to a local AIDS service organization. Money raised in each city stays in that city.

Actress and advocate Pam Grier joined Dining Out For Life as co-spokesperson (with Food Network host Ted Allen) to help raise support: There is a resurgence of HIV among youth, gay men, women and ethnic minorities due to lack of education and the misperception that the epidemic is over and curable. Awareness and funds are declining — but you can help. Dine out on Thursday, April 29th for the most satisfying meal you’ll have all year.” Here is how to participate:
  • Visit and make a reservation at a participating restaurant near you on April 29.
  • Contact the Dining Out For Life AIDS service provider in your city to volunteer.
  • Follow us on Twitter @DineOut4Life and on and join the world’s largest social dining event…TwEAT Out, Fight AIDS!
