Dining Out for Life - July 28, 2016
Dining Out For Life - Thursday, July 28, 2016
On Thursday, July 28, do what we do best in New Orleans - go out to eat with your friends and family. If you live here you love good food and time with your friends, so what could be easier than Dining Out For Life to help raise money for the programs and services of NO/AIDS Task Force?
This year, dozens of the area's best restaurants will donate at a portion of their proceeds to NO/AIDS Task Force. All you have to do is dine at one of these restaurants and you will be helping those affected by HIV and AIDS in our community.
Once again, our friend Poppy Tooker (Champion of Louisiana's culinary customs, cookbook author, and host of the NPR-affiliated "Louisiana Eats.") is joining us as Honorary Chair of Dining Out For Life New Orleans. Poppy invites you to make a day of it! Start with coffee in the Marigny, lunch uptown, a late afternoon snack on Freret, dinner in the French Quarter... and a quick trip to Mid-City for dessert!
Making an additional donation is easier than ever. Ask your server for a Donation Envelope, or give $10 by texting NOAIDS to 20222. (A one-time donation of $10.00 will be added to your mobile phone bill or deducted from your prepaid balance) Make an additional donation, and you'll be entered to win 2 Patron level tickets to Art Against AIDS, our exciting gala held at Club XLIV at Champions Square on December 4.
By Dining Out For Life you'll also help our restaurant friends and their staff who work as servers, bussers, cooks and restaurant bartenders. One of our long-time participating restaurants said, "Thank you for inviting us to participate in Dining Out for Life. We look forward to a fun night in the middle of our slowest season!"
For over 30 years, NO/AIDS Task Force has been providing hope, care and compassion to thousands of men, women and families affected by HIV & AIDS in Southeast Louisiana. The Task Force acknowledges that the complications of HIV-disease are not just physical, but mental, emotional and social as well. That is why our agency offers a full spectrum of care at low to no cost, including services such as: an HIV medical clinic, food pantry, home delivered meals, housing, mental health, medications, and many others. NO/AIDS also remains committed to the health of our entire community and reaches over 20,000 each year through HIV prevention education efforts.
