Big news…Dining Out For Life is going virtual!
For 26 years, we’ve partnered with our restaurant community to host Dining Out For Life, an event that raises funds to support our clients living with HIV/AIDS. This year, with a “stay-at-home” order in place and restaurants restricted to takeout and delivery service ONLY until at least April 30, you can support both local restaurants AND our program by participating in Dining IN For Life, presented by Bank of America.
The restaurant partners who have supported us for so many years are struggling, so we will not be asking them to donate a percentage of sales this year. That means your personal donations will be more important than ever!
Here’s how to participate in Dining IN For Life:
- Make plans now to “dine in” on April 30. Consider ordering takeout or delivery from one of our generous restaurant partners, or enjoy a homemade meal with your family or friends (virtually, of course). Bonus points for supporting our restaurant partners as often as possible between now and April 30!
- Visit www.diningoutforlifedenver.org to make an online gift. You can do that any time between now and our event date of April 30.
- Please consider serving as a virtual event ambassador. You’ll get your own personal fundraising page you can use to help us raise the dollars we need to continue our home-delivered meal program during this difficult time. Join us here.
- Use social media to make this fun and help us spread the word. Post pictures, videos, or ideas on ways to “dine in” to support Project Angel Heart. Use the hashtag #DiningINForLife and tag Project Angel Heart in your posts!
Thanks for standing by us during this COVID-19 public health crisis. We have been stretched thin, but want to continue our annual Dining Out For Life tradition! We hope you will help us do so by “dining in” and donating online what you would have given at the restaurant.
And please do consider joining us as a virtual ambassador! We’ll need at least 300 active virtual ambassadors to make this event a success this year. To join us, go the Dining IN For Life website and click on the “VOLUNTEER as a Virtual Ambassador” button.
Thanks for helping–and for continuing to support our wonderful restaurant community, too. Your support is making it possible for us to keep delivering nutritious meals to Coloradans who are extremely vulnerable to COVID-19 and unable to leave their homes.
