Like many fundraising events, Dining Out For Life will definitely be different this year. 

But first, here’s a little history… 

Dining Out For Life is an annual dining fundraising event that raises money for community-based organizations that serve people who are living with or impacted by HIV. 

Communities across the country participate. Western New York is one of those communities. 

Participating restaurants in WNY typically donate at least 25 percent of their proceeds to Evergreen Health. But since COVID-19 has devastated the restaurant industry, Evergreen Health is not asking the restaurants for those donations.

Instead, they want restaurants to keep all of the money they make on October 13 as a thank you to the restaurants who have supported them year after year.

But don’t worry, you can still support the cause.

Here’s how: 

  • Make plans to order takeout on Tuesday, October 13 for breakfast, lunch, or dinner… or all of the above (no judgement from us) 
  • Invite your friends and family to participate too 
  • Spread the word via email and on social media 
  • Make a donation to Evergreen Health and be entered to win a prize

All donations made on October 13 through 31 will be matched dollar for dollar, up to $12,000 thanks to this year’s presenting sponsor, KeyBank. Plus, anyone who donates will be entered into a raffle to win one of several great raffle prizes. 

The prizes include: 

  • A private tasting and tour for six at Lockhouse Distilling
  • One of five $100 gift certificates to a DOFL restaurant of your choosing, sponsored by Lawley Insurance
  • A grand prize of two round trip tickets on JetBlue

You can donate online or mail a check to Evergreen Health Foundation, PO Box 1106, Buffalo, NY 14201 with Dining Out For Life in the memo.
