Wayne’s Weekend: Dining Out For Life On April 24, 2014

Simply by dining out, restaurants will donate a portion of their proceeds to an HIV/AIDS related charity

Next Thursday, April 24, 2014, over 3,000 restaurants nationwide will be donating a portion of their proceeds to HIV/AIDS related organizations.  It’s called Dining Out For Life and, since 1991, millions of dollars have been raised to support men, women and children impacted by HIV/AIDS.  Last year over 300,000 individuals supported Dining Out For Life simply by having a meal at a participating restaurant.  This year, there are over 55 restaurants participating and proceeds will be going to Edge Alliance, an organization dedicated to providing a healthy and stable environment for the individuals and communities impacted by HIV/AIDS.  You’ll find more information on their website at EdgeAlliance.org.  Below is a list of participating restaurants in Chicagoland.  You can get additional information about Dining Out For Life and these restaurants at DiningOutForLife.com.
