CARES is proud to announce that Dining Out For Life®, the tastiest fundraiser of the year, is back for our tenth year!

On April 26, 2018, Southwest Michigan’s most generous restaurants will be supporting CARES by donating at least 25% of food and beverage sales on that day.

CARES is a non-profit organization that exists to reduce the risk of HIV infection and to improve the lives of people affected by the disease. To achieve this mission, we offer two primary services -- HIV Prevention and HIV Client Care. We offer free HIV testing, pre-test counseling, and educational programs. Client care services include serving as patient advocates, providing housing assistance, transportation to and from medical appointments, medication management, and other services designed to ensure that people remain in medical care.

So grab your family and friends and make plans now to dine out at a participating restaurant for coffee, breakfast, lunch, dinner, and cocktails on April 26.  With your help, we can continue to provide life-sustaining services to those in need in our community!
