Dining Out For Life 2018 (AUDIO)

By Charlotte Robinson, April 17, 2018
It’s that time of year for Dining Out For Life the fabulous HIV/AIDS fundraising event that takes place on Thursday April 26th. More than 3,000 participating restaurants in nearly 60 cities across North America donate a generous percentage of that day’s proceeds to support service providers in their region to fund care, prevention, education, testing, counseling & other essential HIV/AIDS services. An estimated $4 million will be raised in just one day of dining. Ted Allen, Dining Out For Life Spokesperson & host of “Chopped” stated, “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 & AIDS service organizations in a single day. It also helps restaurants & chefs get new people coming in to try what they’re doing. It just seems like such a win-win-win for everybody.” Alan Bethke, Subaru of America Vice President of Marketing that hosts the event added, “We have been the host sponsor of Dining Out For Life for a decade; however, the struggle to fight the HIV/AIDS epidemic continues on. Subaru is proud to be part of an event that spreads awareness for such a worthy cause & also encourages people to support those who need it most in their local communities.” Volunteer spokespeople also included include actor Pam Grier (Foxy Brown, Jackie Brown), designer Mondo Guerra, winner of Lifetime’s Project Runway All-Stars & Chef Daisy Martinez from Food Network’s Viva Daisy!
