Dining Out For Life to Help End HIV

Dining Out For Life is an annual dining fundraising event raising money for community-based organizations serving people living with or impacted by HIV. This one-day event is Philadelphia’s largest dining fundraiser, and it returns to the Greater Philadelphia area on April 18, 2019. Join Action Wellness, local community leaders, the Philly PR Girl team, and thousands of others as we cheers to helping end HIV!

Next Thursday, dine out for breakfast, lunch and/or dinner at one of 150 participating restaurants. By doing so, 33% of your food bill will be donated to local service organizations to provide life-sustaining services to thousands of men, women and children in the Philadelphia region living with HIV.
