SAVE THE DATE FOR A MEANINGFUL PLATE
Dine Out to End AIDS on April 27*
Dining Out For Life® hosted by Subaru® is a restaurant-based event with a truly scrumptious call to action: Dine at one of the 3,000 participating restaurants in more than 60 cities across North America on Thursday, April 27th* and that restaurant will donate a generous portion of the day's proceeds to fund HIV/AIDS care, prevention, education, testing, counseling and other essential services in their city.
- Volunteer spokespeople include Ted Allen, host of Food Network’s Chopped, actor Pam Grier (Foxy Brown, Jackie Brown), designer Mondo Guerra, winner of Lifetime's Project Runway All-Stars, and chef Daisy Martinez from Food Network's Viva Daisy! "I love working with (Dining Out For Life) because it's just such a cool, very low-overhead operation that raises more than $4 million for American HIV and AIDS service organizations in a single day. It also helps restaurants and chefs get new people coming in to try what they're doing. It just seems like such a win-win-win for everybody," says Ted Allen (HIV Plus Magazine).
- Mondo Guerra designed unique illustrations to honor each Dining Out For Life AIDS service organization. These beautiful prints were incorporated in a stunning, kaleidoscope-inspired 360-degree video.
- "As part of Subaru's Love Promise, we remain committed to supporting the causes our drivers care about, including joining the fight to overcome an HIV/AIDS epidemic that affects many in our local communities and millions around the world,” said Alan Bethke, senior vice president of marketing, Subaru of America Inc. “We are proud to once again work with Dining Out For Life to spread awareness for such a worthy cause."
