We are excited to announce our rescheduled Dining Out For Life, COVID Conscious Reboot, event date:

Thursday, September 17th, 2020!

On Thursday, September 17th EPIC (Empath Partners in Care) will celebrate our 15th year participating in Dining Out For Life! Due to our new COVID lifestyle, the event is now a Dining Out/Takeout/Delivery event. For the past 15 years, our restaurant partners have generously donated a portion of their sales at DOFL to support EPIC and our vital HIV/AIDS services.

This year is our chance to return the favor and support them! We are no longer requiring donations from restaurants but are encouraging you to support our partner restaurants in any way you can. Options include: dining in safely, ordering takeout, using curbside pickup, having a meal delivered, or purchasing a gift card and buying some swag! We hope you will join us for Dining Out For Life and support our wonderful participating restaurants.

Please also consider making a direct donation to support EPIC (scroll down this page to the “Donate” button – right under the Facebook/Twitter/Instagram logos!). All donations will be entered into a prize drawing for a $200 Publix gift card! 

Dining Out For Life is an international event supporting services for people living with HIV/AIDS, all funds raised at our event stay in Hillsborough and Pinellas counties! Partners throughout Tampa, Gulfport, Clearwater, St. Petersburg and Dunedin will join together in support of EPIC as we can continue to be a force of change in the fight against HIV.

This incredibly important event will show your care for our hardworking restaurant partners, will help support our community, benefit EPIC’s programs, and fill your belly!

“I am so happy to give back to the community in whatever way I can; watching the people come in and enjoy our food is great. I also love looking for the restaurants that are participating that I can hit for dinner! Keep up the good work and I look forward to many more years.” David Hitterman, The Frog Pond, 15 year DOFL participating restaurant
