More than 70 DC-Area Restaurants Donating a Significant Portion of Sales to Support Children and Adults Facing HIV/AIDS and Cancer

On Thursday, April 6th, diners across the Washington metro region will 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 70 area restaurants have pledged to contribute 25% to 110% of lunch and/or dinner sales to benefit Food & Friends’ clients living with HIV/AIDS, cancer and other life-challenging illnesses throughout the National Capital Region.

Where: Food & Friends is thrilled to have more than 70 restaurants on board, including those that are donating their entire evening’s proceeds, or more, to Food & Friends – Freddie's Beach Bar & Restaurant and Annie’s Paramount Steak House. A complete list of participating restaurants can be found at www.foodandfriends.org/diningout. Reservations can be made on OpenTable.com or through the restaurants directly.
