Follow Me Foodie to Dining Out For Life!
If you’re dining out one day this month or week, make it Thursday March 7! Whether it is for breakfast, lunch, or dinner (or even all three), find the opportunity to go out and support Dining Out For Life.
Dining Out For Life is BC’s largest annual restaurant HIV/AIDS fundraising event. Almost 200 restaurants have signed on to donate 25% of their total food sales from all their meals to Friends For Life and A Loving Spoonful. Both charities support those living in our communities suffering with HIV/AIDS. See the full list of participating restaurants here. And if you don’t have time, also feel free to make a direct donation to the charities here.
Just to give you an idea of how far your dollar goes, Lisa Martella, Executive Director at A Loving Spoonful says “a couple spending $50 at a Dining Out For Life restaurant will provide meals for 4 people through A Loving Spoonful.”
Added note from DOFL: 2013 also marks the introduction of Dinning Out For Life’s new initiative – the Vancity 20% Off Tuesdays Savings Card, which offers a 20% saving on food purchased every Tuesday until February 2014 at the 14 participating Lower Mainland restaurants. The card is just a small token of appreciation to those guests who visit a participating restaurant on Thursday, March 7, 2013 .
The participating restaurants range from casual to fine dining, but I don’t even think that should be a convincing factor. This event is for a great cause and everybody wins. And speaking of winning, I would love your help in spreading the word.
