It’s not too late to book a table for the 2019 Dining Out for Life. The annual event raises funds for community-based organizations that help people living with and affected by HIV. Raising money to fight AIDS has never been easier—or more fulfilling…*burp.*

Participating is super simple: Restaurants in cities across the nation donate a portion of the day’s sales to local HIV-related groups. All you have to do is find out which eateries in your city participate and on which day. Then make your reservations and dig in.

In 2018, more than 3,000 restaurants raised more than a total of $4.1 million, which benefited more than 50 local HIV service organizations.

The event is sponsored by Subaru and Ponaman Healthcare Consulting. To follow the event on social media, check out @diningout4life on Instagram and Facebook and @dineout4life on Twitter.
