We are excited to announce our new Dining Out For Life event date:

Thursday, September 17th, 2020!

On Thursday, September 17th EPIC will celebrate its 15th year participating in Dining Out For Life; however, due to the 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 proceeds from the one-day dining event to support EPIC and our vital HIV/AIDS services.

This year we feel that it is our chance to return the favor and support them! While we are no longer requiring donations from restaurants; we encourage everyone to support our partner restaurants in any way you can, such as dining in safely, ordering takeout, having a meal delivered, or purchasing a gift card. We hope you will participate in Dining Out For Life and support our wonderful participating restaurants.

We also hope, that you will support EPIC by making a donation directly to EPIC (just scroll down this page to the “Donate” button – under the Facebook/Twitter/Insta logos!).

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

This incredibly important event helps nourish our community, supports a wonderful cause, and fills your soul!

“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
