Our signature event, Dining Out for Life, was founded in Philadelphia by ActionAIDS in 1991 and has expanded to over 60 cities in North America. This annual event has become our middle name and a “Must Do” event throughout the Delaware Valley.
Every year, on the last Thursday in April, participating restaurants donate 33% of each diner’s food bill to local AIDS service organizations, and our beloved volunteer Ambassadors raise additional contributions from individual patrons. Anyone that donates $25 or more is eligible for 20% Off Tuesdays for the rest of the year.
If you are interested in having your restaurant participate in Dining Out for Life, please contact ActionAIDS ASAP. You can volunteer as a Dining Out for Life Ambassador. Volunteers are key to the success of this event.

Thank you for helping us make sure that no one faces AIDS alone.
You are our hero!
