Dine Out on April 24th and Make a Difference

100 DC-Area Restaurants Donating a Significant Portion of Sales to Support Children and Adults Facing HIV/AIDS and Cancer

On Thursday, April 24th, diners across the Washington metro region will join hundreds of thousands of others from across North America to stand up against HIV/AIDS, cancer and other life-challenging illnesses by sitting down at restaurants participating in this year’s Dining Out for Life® fundraiser. More than 100 area restaurants have pledged to contribute 25% to 100% of that day’s proceeds to benefit Food & Friends’ clients living with HIV/AIDS, cancer and other life-challenging illnesses throughout the National Capital Region.

When:  Thursday, April 24th

Where: Food & Friends is thrilled to have 100 restaurants on board, including those that are donating their entire evening’s proceeds to Food & Friends – Freddie's Beach Bar & Restaurant, Annie’s Paramount Steak House, and Ristorante Tosca. A complete list of participating restaurants can be found at Reservations can be made on or through the restaurants directly.

More Info: Once again this year, Queen Force One, a shuttle bus of Drag Queens, will be visiting different restaurants throughout the evening.
