Los Angeles is Dining Out for Life, Thursday, April 28

Los Angeles, CA — On Thursday, April 28, over 3,500 restaurants in 56 cities across the U.S. will host Dining Out for Life, which aims to raise funds for local HIV/AIDS charities. With the help of more than 250,000 diners, Dining Out for Life expects to raise over $4 million to support those living with HIV/AIDS.

"Dining Out for Life is an easy and fun way to support a great cause," said the campaign's spokesperson, Ted Allen, host of Food Network's hit series Chopped. "Gather a group of friends and have a good meal amongst others in your community that are there for the same reason."

Dining Out for Life, which is the single largest HIV/AIDS benefit in the country, is celebrating its 20-year anniversary. The unique fundraising event was started in 1991 by a volunteer for ActionAIDS in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. 

In Los Angeles, participating local restaurants will contribute up to 20% of the meal ticket to Los Angeles' Project Angel Food, which delivers food and nutritious meals to people with HIV/ADS and other life-threatening diseases throughout LA County, as part of Dining Out for Life.
