Today is Dinning Out for Life! It supports the organization I volunteer for Food and Friends.
More about Dinning Out for Life:
Washington, DC – On Thursday, April 6th, diners across the Washington metro region will stand up against HIV/AIDS, cancer and other life-challenging illnesses by sitting down at restaurants participating in this year’s Dining Out for Life® fundraiser, benefiting Food and Friends.
Now in its 29th year in Washington, DC, Food & Friends enlists the benevolence of area eateries – from Hyattsville to Shirlington, from Dupont Circle to Shaw – in support of children and adults facing life-challenging illnesses who benefit from the organization’s nutrition services. More than 70 area restaurants (and counting!) have pledged to contribute 25% to 110% of lunch and/or dinner proceeds to directly benefit Food & Friends’ programs and clients in the National Capital Region.
“It’s a fantastic night. With one great meal out with his or her friends, each diner is making a significant and lasting impact on their community members in greatest need,” says Food & Friends’ Executive Director Craig Shniderman. “The restaurant community has long supported the work of Food & Friends and we’re incredibly grateful. The funds raised through Dining Out for Life® make it possible for us to serve thousands of meals each day to those living with the challenges of HIV/AIDS, cancer and other debilitating illnesses.”
So if you have time tonight please help out. Click here for a list of restaurants that are participating.
