60 Cities Dine Out to End HIV
PHILADELPHIA, March 19, 2019 /3BL Media/ – Dining Out For Life® hosted by Subaru of America is an annual dining fundraising event raising money for community-based organizations serving people living with or impacted by HIV.
The concept is simple: Restaurants donate a generous percentage of their sales to a local HIV service organization, and Dining Out For Life helps to fill participating restaurants with diners. Find a restaurant from the list of participating locations and on that city’s event date, Dine Out to help end HIV!
In 2019, nearly 60 local HIV service organizations will partner with 3,000 participating restaurants, thousands of volunteers, and an expected 300,000+ diners to raise over $4 million for people living with HIV in the United States and Canada.
The best part? All funds raised through a city’s Dining Out For Life event stay in that area to provide HIV care, prevention, education, testing, counseling and other essential services to people living with, or impacted by HIV/AIDS.
Volunteer celebrity spokespeople include Ted Allen, author and host of Food Network’s Chopped, actor/activist Pam Grier (Foxy Brown, Jackie Brown), HIV-positive designer Mondo Guerra, winner of Project Runway All-Stars and host of the new streaming series Runway Remake.
“The wonderful thing about Dining Out for Life is you can sit down and have a meal with someone interesting, someone you love, maybe someone you haven't seen in a while. And, it's an opportunity to have a conversation. The fight against this disease begins with real, honest conversation,” says Mondo Guerra.

"We are happy to continue our long-standing sponsorship of Dining Out For Life in an effort to raise awareness and funds that allow the continued fight against HIV/AIDS that impact many in our communities,” said Alan Bethke, Senior Vice President of Marketing, Subaru of America Inc. “Through the Subaru Love Promise, we work to make a positive impact for causes, initiatives and organizations that our owners care most about, simply because it is the right thing to do.
