Meet The Grand Prize Winner Of Our Video Contest

Dining Out For Life is proud to announce Sammy Shuster from Philadelphia as the “Why Do You Dine Out” video contest winner. Her charming and heartfelt animated video begins with an illustration of the iconic Robert Indiana LOVE sculpture and explaining why she “Dines Out,” takes the viewer through the leveling statistics of HIV/AIDS in her city (five times the national average!) and ends with an uplifting message to celebrate “Life.”

Shuster, who studied at NYU and earned a Masters in Social Work from Temple University says, “I am so happy to support Dining Out for Life and to have my video used to promote it. As an employee of an AIDS Service OrganizationI know first-hand how important this event is in helping to fund services for people living with HIV/AIDS.” When she is not working as a Program Analyst at ActionAIDS, Sammy enjoys singing, playing guitar, cooking, dancing, exploring Philadelphia, and spending time with her fiancée , Corey.

Congrats to all contest entrants. As the popular winner of the contest, Sammy will enjoy a trip for two to a DOFL participating city in the Continental U.S. Check out Sammy’s winning, animated video here.
