Choose from over 70 restaurants on Tuesday, April 22 and Dine Out, Fight AIDS!

2014 DOFL LogoOn Tuesday, April 22, 2014 an estimated 6,000 people will dine out to fight AIDS in Nashville.  Nashville Pharmacy Services and Embassy Dental are Co-Presenting Sponsors of the event, where restaurants participate in Dining Out For Life by donating a generous percentage of proceeds from the day’s meals to Nashville CARES.

“Dining Out For Life allows us the opportunity to support Nashville CARES and all of the great work that they do to support those living with HIV/AIDS in our community.   By simply going out to eat and enjoying a meal with friends and loved ones you are able to help those in our community living with HIV/AIDS,” said Kevin Hartman, Nashville Pharmacy Services.

Dining Out For Life is the first dine-out fundraiser of its kind and has raised millions for HIV/AIDS service organizations across North America.  In 2013, more than $150,000 was raised to fight HIV/AIDS in Middle Tennessee. 

So how does it work?  Thousands of people from all over the metro Nashville area will choose their favorite participating restaurant and dine out for breakfast, lunch and/or dinner, knowing that a percentage of their bill will be donated by the restaurant to benefit Nashville CARES and the fight against HIV/AIDS.  To view a full list of participating restaurants, visit
