What is Dining Out For Life®?

Dining Out For Life® is a one-day international event to raise funds for HIV/AIDS services in local communities. All funds raised support the local host organization – in Broward County that is Broward House. In 2016 there were 3,197 participating restaurants and more than $4.19 million were raised across all participating cities.

How does it work?

Participating restaurants choose to contribute between 30 and 100% of their food and beverage receipts based on their ability and agreement. In 2018 there were 33 participating locations in Broward County and we raised $40,000.

Who is Broward

Our mission is to improve the quality of life for individuals impacted with chronic health challenges, including HIV, by providing pathways to wellness.

What do you get for participating?
