Dining Out For Life International (DOFLI) must ensure that as a national organization we do our part in flattening the curve to help end the COVID-19 pandemic. Therefore, the DOFLI Board of Directors has recommended to its network of licensed HIV/AIDS Service Organizations that no local in-person Dining Out For Life events be produced before all federal, state, and local governing regulations and CDC recommendations are lifted.
At this time, the DOFLI Board
of Directors encourages you to take the following actions:
community’s page on diningoutforlife.com to see if the licensed organization
has postponed its event date, and if so, the new date for your community’s
Dining Out For Life event*.
Reach out to the HIV/AIDS
Service Organization that produces Dining Out For Life in your community to see
how you can help them help the people they serve during the COVID-19 pandemic.
restaurants in your community that are Dining Out For Life participants by
purchasing gift certificates or ordering takeout meals when possible.
IMPORTANT: If the organization that produces Dining Out For Life in your city has a date of 12/31/2020 listed, then this means that their event has been postponed but has not yet chosen a date; please check back soon to confirm the new date that Dining Out For Life will be hosted in your city.
As we move through this new
landscape together and make decisions based on evolving information, we will
continue to provide updates. We encourage you to stay up-to-date with the latest
information regarding the COVID-19 pandemic:
*Please note that postponed
dates are subject to change.
Dining Out For Life® is an annual fundraising event involving the generous participation of volunteers, corporate sponsors and restaurants. The concept is simple: Restaurants donate a generous percent of their sales to a local HIV service organization, and the local HIV service organization fills participating restaurants with diners. Participating is even easier: locate a Dining Out For Life event in a city near you, find a restaurant from the list of participating locations, and on that city’s event date: Dine Out to End HIV.
In 2019, more than 50 local HIV service organizations partnered with 2,400+ participating restaurants, 4,100+ volunteers, and 300,000+ diners to raise an astonishing $4.28 million for people living with HIV/AIDS in the United States and Canada. Best part? All funds raised through a city’s Dining Out For Life event stay in that city to provide help and hope to people living with or impacted by HIV/AIDS.
You can participate too! Find out if your city participates in Dining Out For Life by clicking on the interactive map on the homepage.
