    Wayne shows you how you can help support a good cause just by eating. (Published Thursday, Apr 18, 2013)

    On Thursday, April 25, 2013 over 3,000 restaurants nationwide will participate in "Dining Out For Life", a charity event whose proceeds support a number of HIV/AIDS related charities.  These participating restaurants donate a portion of their profits on that day, so the more folks that dine out at one of the restaurants, the larger the charitable donation.  The Chicagoland beneficiary of Dining Out For Life is EdgeAlliance, a non-profit organization which assists its members in developing and operating quality housing and providing life enriching services to vulnerable individuals and families, including those impacted by HIV/AIDS.  To find out more about EdgeAlliance, check out their website at www.edgealliance.com.

    To support Dining Out For Life, simply pick one of the over 75 participating restaurants and go eat. That's all you have to do.  The restaurant does the rest.  The atmosphere at many of these restaurants is usually one filled with large groups, lots of energy, and, obviously, great food.  Put together your own group and make a reservation today!  It's always an enjoyable time and, simply by dining out, you're helping to provide support to a very worthy cause.  Here's a complete list of all participating restaurants, including during what part of the day each is participating, and a link to the Dining Out For Life site if you'd like additional information.
