Dine Out for Life –  April 26, 2018
Local Restaurants Lead Fundraising in North America

PALM SPRINGS, CA (April 4, 2018)  More than 70 generous restaurants across the Coachella Valley will ‘Make One Meal Matter’ on April 26 when they participate in Dining Out for Life 2018 supporting Desert AIDS Project.  Last year’s event raised $230,000 for Desert AIDS Project making Greater Palm Springs the third largest fundraising market in 52 markets across North America.

Dining Out for Life is a national campaign held each year on the last Thursday in April throughout the United States and Canada to raise funds for AIDS Service Organizations. Greater Palm Springs is proudly home to the top three fundraising restaurants in North America.  Many new restaurants have joined the cause this year, committing to donate 33% or more of their food, beverage, and liquor gross sales to support Desert AIDS Project on April 26.

“This is a unique opportunity for people to join the fight against HIV/AIDS.  Just choose one of the participating restaurants and invite your friends or family to enjoy a great meal together.  We are grateful to the restaurants that continue to support our mission and invite everyone to make one meal matter.” said David Brinkman, CEO of Desert AIDS Project (DAP).

Sponsors of Dining Out for Life Coachella Valley include: Bank of America, Sysco Riverside, City of Palm Springs, The Desert Sun
