Dine Out to Make a Difference
This April, join in the fight against AIDS by simply enjoying a great meal with family or friends for Dining Out For Life hosted by Subaru,a delicious event held in 60 cities across North America. The fundraiser was dreamed up twenty-five years ago by a volunteer at ActionAIDS in Philadelphia and is magnificent in its simplicity. More than 3,000 restaurants have enlisted to participate by donating a generous portion of the day’s proceeds to support their local AIDS service organization (which promotes their participation) to fund care, prevention, education, testing, counseling and other essential HIV/AIDS services.An estimated $4 million will be raised during just one day of dining out.

The idea behind the single-day event is simple and effective: Dine Out, Fight AIDS.
