Reservation for 12,000, please, for WNCAP’s largest fundraiser!!
You are cordially invited to join your friends, clients, family and co-workers on Thursday, April 30th 2015, for the 13th annual Dining Out For Life® benefit to support the mission of the Western North Carolina AIDS Project (WNCAP). This year’s event is well under way and we again look for your continued support. Our needs are greater than ever this year with a reduction in federal funding, and an increasing number of clients who need our help. Over 100 of the finest restaurants in WNC have generously agreed to donate 20% of their gross sales on April 30th 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. Please check back often for an updated list of restaurants for 2015.
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 $176,000 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 HIV Rapid Testing & testing locations.
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, please check the volunteer section of the menu. Volunteering has never been so much fun!
Our sincere thanks,
Harry Brown, WNCAP Special Events Advisor
