Dining Out For Life 2020 will not be happening “in real life” in Philadelphia on April 30, 2020.
In response to COVID-19, Action Wellness has made the difficult decision to cancel its annual fundraising event, Dining Out For Life, scheduled to take place on Thursday, April 30, 2020, when more than 150 area restaurants would have donated 33% of their food sales to Action Wellness, AIDS Delaware, and Camden Area Health Education Center, Inc. to help people living with and affected by HIV in the Delaware Valley.
Instead, Action Wellness is encouraging participants to DINE IN to celebrate what would have been the 30th anniversary of this vital fundraising event and to continue to support those living with HIV.
Additionally DOFL volunteer ambassadors and Action Wellness staff and friends will utilize online peer to peer fundraising to encourage their social network to donate to the cause.

In 1991, a volunteer stepped up to address the AIDS epidemic in Philadelphia. In turn, local restaurants stepped in to help and Dining Out For Life became a yearly event. Since then, this event has raised millions of dollars for those living with HIV in the Philadelphia community. Dining Out For Life was founded to address an epidemic and Action Wellness rose to the challenge. And now, Action Wellness will rise to the challenge again.
