Dining Out For Life Event Date:
April 24, 2014
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 24, 2014, for the 12th 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 24th to enable us to meet these additional challenges in a fragile economy. 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 2014.
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 $165,000 was raised to support the mission of WNCAP and thanks to our generous sponsors, only 6.9% of that total went to cover expenses.
Through the efforts of so many giving individuals and businesses, much needed AIDS awareness and education has been provided throughout WNC, while providing case-managed care to those whose lives have already been affected by HIV/AIDS. Our sincere thanks to them and 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!
Mark your calendars! Thursday, April 24, 2014.
Our sincere thanks.
Harry Brown, Event Coordinator
Jeff Bachar, Executive Director
