INDIANAPOLIS – On Thursday, April 28, help The Damien Center fight HIV and AIDS by dining at any of over 55 Indianapolis restaurants participating in the 22nd Annual Dining Out for Life Indianapolis, Indy’s largest dining fundraiser.
Participating restaurants will donate 25, 50 or even 100 percent of their entire day’s sales to fight AIDS in Indy, and it’s easy – there are no special menus or codes to mention, simply dine out at a participating restaurant.
Dining Out For Life, an international event taking place in 60 cities on April 28, raises money for HIV/AIDS organizations. Locally, it benefits The Damien Center, Indiana’s largest and oldest AIDS service organization.
“Dining Out For Life directly benefits those affected by HIV by providing vital supportive, preventive, and medical services, including free HIV and STI tests,”Damien Center executive director Tom Bartenbach said. “In 2015, Dining Out For Life raised over $100,000 for Damien Center clients, 98% of whom are living in poverty.”
The Center’s services are always free to the community, so fundraisers like Dining Out For Life are critically important.
With variety and price points for every taste, find a full list of participating restaurants at diningoutforlife.com/indianapolis. For the latest information, also follow The Damien Center on Twitter (@DamienCenter #DOFLIndy) and Facebook (/thedamiencenter).
Supporters can also enjoy the Dining Out for Life Afterparty on April 30 at Talbott Street (for ages 21 and older) to further support The Damien Center.
