Dining Out For Life

Media Title

Even though ActionAIDS’s development director Michael Byrne and his team are busy coordinating more than 150 restaurants in the Delaware Valley, he took a few minutes to give PW some specifics about Dining Out For Life and how it works: Restaurants across the region are donating 33 percent of their food sales for the day to much-needed services for thousands of men, women and children living with HIV and AIDS in the Delaware Valley, an effort, Bryne says, that “was created by an ActionAIDS volunteer 23 years ago.” Suffice it to say, you can make a huge difference in others’ lives by simply forgoing those cooking chores tonight and going out to patronize any number of participating eateries, many of which you probably already love. It’s an almost effortless way to give back to a community in need and simultaneously support local businesses striving to do good. Besides, people, “who doesn’t love to go out to eat?” Bryne asks rhetorically, recalling that very first Dining Out For Life fundraiser. “My friends and I jumped at the chance and had a great meal at Judy’s Cafe. It was packed, and you could feel love in the air. That feeling has not changed, in my heart, or in the restaurants that night. Everyone is out to make a difference. It is magical!” We agree. Wholeheartedly. / Bill Chenevert
