Dining Out For Life ®

Dining Out For Life was created in 1991 and is a trademarked international fundraiser conducted in more than 60 cities that raises over $4 million for HIV annually. The Aliveness Project’s Dining Out For Life is in its 24th year and one of the largest events in the country.

With over 160 restaurant partners, 150 volunteer ambassadors, and 40,000 diners, The Aliveness Project is able to raise over $250,000 each year to support people living with HIV in Minnesota. Each restaurant donates a minimum of 20% of all food sales and sponsors and diners give generously to help us reach our goal. Dining Out For Life is held the fourth Thursday in April.

For more information visit www.DiningOutForLifeMN.org.
