Dining Out for Life
"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 November 29, 2012.
With your help we can raise $115,000 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 November 29th. 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!
We always hope to grow the event each year by confirming the return of our existing restaurants and adding new restaurants. The Restaurant Contract and Information Form can be downloaded here, printed out and mailed or faxed to us at:
Food For Thought, P. O. Box 1608, Forestville, CA 95436 or Faxed to 707-887-1440
We have an invitation for you to be an Ambassador for Food For Thought. Ok, so as a friend of Food For Thought, you probably already are our ambassador ... and we love you for that.
This is something very specific. We have signed up more than 80 Dining Out for Life restaurants in the County of Sonoma and we are recruiting Ambassadors for each one of those eateries ... so can we talk?
Apply online! Go to the Dining Out For Life ambassador application form.
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 November 29 - when Food For Thought gets a direct donation of a minimum of 25% of their bill.
We plan to conduct Ambassador trainings in Sonoma and here at the Food Bank in mid-November to talk about how to be a good host at assigned restaurants. Like to eat out? - then this is your night to shine! Please call Elisa if you want to know more or can sign on for one of our restaurants - at 707-887-1647 x103 or email her at email@example.com ... THANKS!
In 2011, over $125,000 was raised and more than 5,000 diners were served on the ONE day of Dining Out for Life in Sonoma County.
