For WNCAP’s largest fundraiser!

You are cordially invited to join your friends, clients, family and co-workers on Thursday, April 26th, 2018, for the 16th annual Dining Out For Life® benefit to support the Western North Carolina AIDS Project (WNCAP).

Over 100 of the finest restaurants in Western North Carolina have generously agreed to donate 20% of their gross sales on April 26th to enable us to meet the expanding needs of WNCAP. You can do your part by simply dining out for breakfast, lunch or dinner or all three.  We encourage you to visit our DOFL restaurants all year round and thank them for their kind support.  Check out the 2018 Participating Restaurants here.   

A special thanks to all of our restaurants, sponsors and diners for making last year’s Dining Out For Life benefit another success story. Over $160,000 was raised to support the mission of WNCAP and thanks to our generous sponsors, less than 7% of that total went to cover expenses. Because of your generosity, we were able to add additional case managers to provide more services to rural areas of WNC, place more clients in housing & expand our Prevention and Education department.          

Through the efforts of so many giving individuals, much-needed AIDS awareness and education has been sown throughout WNC, while providing case-managed care to those whose lives have already been affected by HIV/AIDS. Our sincere thanks to our 240 Ambassadors/volunteers for their incredible efforts.  We couldn’t have done it without you! 

If you would like to be a part of this year’s benefit as an Ambassador, click here to volunteer.

Mark your calendars! Thursday, April 26th, 2018.

We are NOW recruiting Volunteer Restaurant Ambassadors for  DINING OUT FOR LIFE® on Thursday, April 26th, 2018.
 
(Over 100 local, independently-owned restaurants are participating) 
 
Once you've selected an available restaurant & shift, CONTACT CHRIS at
 wncapvolunteer@wncap.org  or 828-252-7489 ext. 315 
to confirm your placement and get more information 
 
As a Restaurant Ambassador, you will serve as a "meet and greet" host at your chosen Dining Out For Life® (DOFL) restaurant. Each restaurant has agreed to donate 20% of their sales on Thursday, April 26th to support the mission of WNCAP.

You will be distributing drawing/donation envelopes that give diners an opportunity to win one of several great prizes, as a way of saying that you to diners for coming out.

Dining Out For Life 2018 Prizes

One of the best parts of Dining Out For Life is the chance to enter a raffle for one of three fantastic prizes! Ambassadors distribute donation envelopes at Participating Restaurants which also act as raffle tickets. Diners simply enclose their donation, write their contact information on the envelope, and cross their fingers to win. This year, we are lucky to have three amazing vendors offering their support:

WIN a year of movie passes at Asheville's favorite movie theatre - the Fine Arts Theatre. Two tickets each month for a full year, plus popcorn & refreshments for two.

 

WIN a $500 cash card compliments of Mosaic Community Lifestyle Realty, a local boutique Asheville realty company.
