Do you like to support causes while eating out? On Thursday, April 26th, 2012, select restaurants in the Chicago AND Washington D.C. areas will be participating in the fight against AIDS. For a list of participating restaurants, check out the list of the supporting restaurants:
This year marks the 19th Annual Dining out for Life for Chicago! It’s an annual dining fundraising event raising money for AIDS service organizations. As stated on their website:
“Last year, Chicago raised over $125,000 to continue its mission of providing housing with life services to men, women & children living with HIV/AIDS. This year we hope to raise $150,000. You can help make a difference by joining us along with 60 other cities throughout North America and Nigeria and dine out on Thursday, April 26th!
Don’t miss Food & Friends’ 16th annual Dining Out for Life DC! On Thursday, April 26th, more than 150 participating restaurants in DC, MD and VA will donate 25-100% of sales to Food & Friends’ life-saving services.
Food & Friends is the only nonprofit organization in the Washington, DC area providing daily, home-delivered, specialized meals, groceries and nutrition counseling to individuals who are battling HIV/AIDS, cancer and other life-challenging illnesses. The funds raised through Dining Out for Life allow Food & Friends to continue to provide these critical services at NO COST to our clients.
Participating restaurants in Chicago include Anteprima, Big Jones, Blackbird, Ceres’ Table, Hamburger Mary’s, Jack’s on Halsted, Nookies Edgewater, Uncommon Ground, and many more! Might I add there’s a very strong showing from the Andersonville neighborhood. 😉 Participating restaurants in Washington D.C. include many Whole Foods locations, Le Chat Noir, Bangkok Garden, Cafe Bonaparte, Dupont Italian Kitchen, Red Rocks Pizza and many more! Go forth and eat in support!
“Reservations are strongly encouraged at most Dine Out locations. Let your restaurant know that you will be dining with them because of their support for HIV/AIDS services in your community.”
