Dining Out for Life Event

By Charlotte Robinson, February 21, 2013
Gay activist Mondo Guerra, winner of Lifetime’s Project Runway All-Stars is the newest spokesperson for Dining Out for Life hosted by Subaru® the annual fundraiser for AIDS service organizations throughout North America. Guerra has created a limited edition t-shirt to benefit Dining Out for Life® which was recently debuted in Philadelphia. Mondo stated, “I am a creature of expression through fashion & through my advocacy work. Dining Out for Life is our opportunity to celebrate friends, food & being truly fabulous in helping others.” Guerra, who disclosed his HIV-positive status on Project Runway has become a prominent advocate for the fight against HIV/AIDS adding, "I was so afraid of the backlash & how people were going to react about my HIV-positive status because I hadn’t talked about it for ten years, but there was this outpouring of love & support from the community at large. I really felt like it was my responsibility to continue this conversation on HIV/AIDS & that is why I have become an advocate for the cause." Dining Out for Life spokespeople include Ted Allen, host of Food Network’s Chopped, Author, Actor Pam Grier (Foxy, Jackie Brown) & Chef Daisy Martinez from Food Network’s ¡Viva Daisy! Dining Out for Life International hosted by Subaru will be held on Thursday, April 25th in 60 cities across the United States & Canada. Some 3,000 restaurants participate by donating a generous percentage of proceeds from the day to a local AIDS service organization. An estimated $4 million will be raised in just one day of dining. Funds raised in each city benefits the designated AIDS service organization in that city.
