Dine out, do good
Next Thursday marks one of the more remarkable examples of the restaurant community’s big-hearted generosity.
It’s Dining out for Life, an annual fundraising event that benefits the Aliveness Project, a Minneapolis nonprofit that provides on-site meals, a food shelf and other services for people living with HIV/AIDS and the Rural AIDS Action Network, which provides case management services, testing, education and support groups for those affected by HIV/AIDS in outstate Minnesota.
Here’s how it works: Dine at one of nearly 170 Twin Cities restaurants and a portion of your tab will be donated to the two nonprofits. Details vary. Donation percentages range from 20 to 100 percent, offered during breakfast, lunch, dinner or a combination of all three.
For a list of participating restaurants, go to www.diningoutforlife.com.
Last year’s event resulted in over $215,000 in donations from restaurants. This year’s target is $220,000.
