Dining Out for Life®

Dine out. Fight AIDS
Thursday, December 4, 2014

"Thank God I'm alive. Your meals have literally saved my life!"--Client Dwayne, age 46, living with HIV/AIDS

These are words we hear all too often from many Food For Thought clients who, like Dwayne, depend on Food For Thought meals for survival. Join us in raising vital funds for Dwayne and others like him, by Dining Out For Life on December 4, 2014.

With your help we can raise $130,000 for Food For Thought, and secure life-sustaining meals for our clients who depend on us! Supporting us is easy. Simply dine at a participating restaurant for breakfast, lunch, and/or dinner, and 25% - 50% of your food bill goes directly to Food For Thought!

So please dine out and help save a life on December 4th. It's guaranteed to be the most satisfying meal you'll have all year!

More than 80 participating Sonoma County restaurants will donate 25% or 50% of their sales for the day to Food For Thought that day. Bon appetit!

Dining Our for Life is the biggest fundraiser of the year for Food For Thought. Some restaurants serve all three meals: Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner and some only Dinner. We are going to make sure that someone is there at every meal to say 'thanks' to diners who are eating out on December 4th - when Food For Thought gets a direct donation of a minimum of 25% of their bill.

We plan to conduct Ambassador trainings here at the Food Bank and in Sonoma November to give you everything you need to feel comfortable in your Ambassador role at assigned restaurants.  Please call Daniel if you want to know more or can sign on for one of our restaurants - at 707-887-1647 x117 or email him at DanielG@fftfoodbank.org ... THANKS!

In 2013, over $140,000 were raised and more than 5,000 diners were served on the ONE day of Dining Out for Life in Sonoma County. Dining Out For Life took place in 64 other locations in the U.S. and Canada, raising $4 million for AIDS services organizations, including Food For Thought.
