Dining Out For Life® is an annual fundraising event involving the generous participation of ambassadors, restaurants, and corporate sponsors.
Historically, participating restaurants generously donate a minimum of 25% of their total sales to LGBT Life Center. This year, however, we’re giving back to our local restaurant industry who has been hit hard by COVID-19.
We’re waiving donations from any restaurants that has participated in our 18-year history – it’s our way of giving back to our community that has so generously supported us over the last 18 years!
Newly participating restaurants can join our Dining Out For Life family for a low, flat rate. Learn more: https://lgbtlifecenter.org/events/dining-out-for-life/.
If diners choose to make donations directly to us, all money raised on this one night will help LGBT Life Center continue our efforts to provide prevention education and outreach for the LGBTQ+ and HIV community.
How can you help? On April 29, 2021, dine out or get take out at one of the many participating restaurants and mention you’re Dining Out For Life®.
It’s that simple – by dining out or getting take out, you support our local restaurant community and show your support for Dining Out For Life! #Everyone wins.
Please note that ALL restaurants that have participated in our 18-year history are listed below. Donations listed as n/a indicated our giveback to restaurants. If a donation percentage is listed, that restaurant has opted to give to Dining Out For Life / LGBT Life Center this year. 
Donations may be mailed to:

With many of our Dining Out For Life restaurant partners having to close their dine-in service, it is important that we continue to support them by buying gift cards and ordering take-out/curbside pick-up. Please visit our list of participating restaurants to support their business: https://www.diningoutforlife.com/city/757
