Thursday, April 27, marks the annual Dining Out for Life 2017 fundraising event in most cities, a night on which a portion of sales at participating restaurants will go to HIV/AIDS organizations. One of the upcoming exceptions is Nashville, where more than 70 restaurants participate in the event on Tuesday, April 18.
According to DiningOutForLife.com, nearly 2,000 restaurants participated in the event last year, raising $4.19 million that went to 54 licensed HIV/AIDS organizations. Founded in 1991, the event is produced by local HIV organizations and is sponsored by Subaru.
