Dining Out for Life - New Orleans
Dining Out for Life - New Orleans, presented locally by Shell, will be held Thursday, July 17th. Make A Date to Make A Difference! Do what we do best in New Orleans, have a party. Invite your friends, family, and co-workers to join you at your favorite restaurant.
Honorary Co-Chairs, Poppy Tooker (Champion of Louisiana's culinary customs, cookbook author, and host of the NPR-affiliated "Louisiana Eats.") and Christian Le Blanc (Emmy award-winning actor who stars as Michael Baldwin on "The Young & The Restless") invite you to join them at one of the more than 100 participating Dining Out for Life - New Orleans restaurants. 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 across the lake for dessert!
Not only will you be helping the men, women and families affected by HIV and AIDS in our community, by dining out, you'll help our friends 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 nice night in the middle of our slowest season!"
New Orleans is a city known worldwide for its cuisine, 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.
On Thursday, July 17th, make sure to ask your waiter for a donation envelope. By making an additional donation to NO/AIDS Task Force on the night of Dining Out For Life, not only will you be entered in a drawing to win a great prize, but your waiter will be entered into a drawing to receive a prize as well.
For 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.
