Dining Out For Life - Tampa Bay 2018
On Thursday, April 26, 2018 an estimated 1,000 people will dine out to fight HIV/AIDS all across Tampa Bay, where restaurants participate in Dining Out For Life by donating a generous percentage of proceeds from the day’s meals to EPIC (Empath Partners in Care)
Dining Out For Life is the first dine-out fundraiser of its kind and has raised millions for HIV/AIDS service organizations across North America. In 2016, more than $35,000 was raised to fight HIV/AIDS in Tampa Bay.
So how does it work? Thousands of people from all over the Tampa Bay area will choose their favorite participating restaurant and dine out for breakfast, lunch and/or dinner, knowing that a percentage of their bill will be donated by the restaurant to benefit EPIC and the fight against HIV/AIDS.

EPIC (Empath Partners in Care) is a nonprofit, full-service HIV services and support organization.
As a member of Empath Health, EPIC was created from the merger of ASAP (AIDS Service Association of Pinellas) and Francis House to serve our Tampa Bay community with expert HIV care, support and prevention services in Hillsborough and Pinellas counties.
Together, we focus on empowering and supporting clients with HIV to stay healthy and thrive through primary and pharmacy care, housing and medical case management, counseling, financial assistance and day center support services. Families and caregivers also are supported and the community is helped to stay HIV-free through education and free testing.
