Dining Out For Life
When I read about the Dining Out For Life project on My Little Artichoke's Blog, I knew I had to blog about it. I had heard about it before, mostly from billboards with Sven Sundgaard's smiling face on them, he's even on the cover of the new issue of Lavender to promote Dining Out For Life. Anyway, Dining Out For Life is an annual fundraiser for various AIDS service organizations, in Minnesota the money raised goes to The Aliveness Project.
Basically, participating restaurants on Thursday April 28th will donate a percentage of their proceeds to a local AIDS service group. Last year in the Twin Cities, $161,000 was raised, not bad! Here's a link to all of the Twin Cities (and Duluth) restaurants that are participating in this awesome project. Some of my favorite restaurants that are participating are Everest on Grand, all Pizza Luce locations, Anodyne, Falafel King, Ecopolitan, and Galactic Pizza.
So, if you can, please eat out on April 28th at a participating restaurant and be part of a great cause!
