DENVER – April 6, 2021 – Project Angel Heart today announced its 27th Annual Dining Out for Life fundraising event will occur April 23 – May 2 in partnership with Visit Denver’s Restaurant Week. This annual event collects contributions from diners to fund the preparation and delivery of medically tailored meals to Coloradans living with life-threatening illnesses. Bank of America is the presenting sponsor and Anthem is the Healthy Dining sponsor of Project Angel Heart’s Dining Out for Life event this year.
“Dining Out for Life brings our community together to make sure neighbors with life-threatening illnesses get the nutrition they need,” said Owen Ryan, president and CEO of Project Angel Heart. “We are grateful to partner with Visit Denver and have the continued support of our generous presenting sponsor, Bank of America.”
Participating in Project Angel Heart’s Dining Out for Life is simple:
- While restaurants normally donate a percentage of Dining Out For Life sales, they will not be asked to do so this year due to the challenges that COVID restrictions have presented over the past year. Select participating restaurants will offer ways for customers to donate at checkout. Additionally, Project Angel Heart will rely heavily on online donations from diners. Donations can be made here.
- Patrons can show love to the local restaurant community by dining with participating restaurants (takeout, delivery, or in-restaurant) between April 23 and May 2. A list of participating restaurants can be found here.
- Join as a volunteer ambassador for a fun and easy, virtual way to provide meals for neighbors in need. Instead of volunteering in restaurants this year, ambassadors will raise funds online to provide meals for neighbors in need and encourage friends and family to support participating restaurants between April 23 and May 2, 2021.

“We are honored to support the Dining Out for Life event for the third consecutive year and help raise critical funds for Project Angel Heart,” said Raju Patel, Denver Market President at Bank of America. “Their mission to improve the health and well-being for people with life-threatening illnesses takes on even greater significance this year when many in our community continue to face challenges caused by the pandemic.”
