Dine Out, Fight AIDS!
It was another AMAZING Dining Out For Life day in the Philadelphia region on April 20, 2017! We were thrilled to see thousands of diners out and about for breakfast, lunch and dinner at close to 200 restaurants throughout the Delaware Valley! Just by eating at a participating restaurant or at our Center City Food Truck Pop Up, 33% of your check was donated to Action Wellness and other area service organizations!

We added some new features this year which proved to be quite popular. Some of our DOFL restaurants featured Action IPA, the special Dining Out For Life beer collaboration from Yards Brewing Co. Action Wellness and Yards representatives were on hand giving out all kinds of Yards goodies including t-shirts, hats and pint glasses. Local favorite ReAnimator Coffee made a limited edition Dining Out For Life coffee blend, and Weckerly's Ice Cream created a Red Ribbon Ripple ice cream sandwich just for DOFL, and both of these makers donated 33% of the sales to Action Wellness!
Our Dining Out diners and restaurants truly make a difference by helping us make sure that no one faces AIDS alone, and their participation impacts thousands of men, women, and children infected with HIV and AIDS in very real ways – medical care, life-saving medications, housing, energy assistance, education and prevention.
Thank you for your generous support!
ActionAIDS is now Action Wellness! This new name more accurately captures the full scope of our services.

Our focus will remain on increasing access to primary health care, while providing practical and emotional support to the clients we are privileged to serve.
