April 27, 2017, Thursday - Dining Out For Life 2017

Dining Out For Life 2017

The Aliveness Project will host its 23rd annual Dining Out For Life on April 27 with over 160 participating restaurants throughout the Twin Cities metro area, Duluth, and Mankato. Each restaurant generously donates 20-100% of their sales that day to help people living with HIV in Minnesota.

KARE11’s Sven Sundgaard and Rena Sarigianopoulos will return as Celebrity Spokespeople for Dining Out For Life Minnesota and will be joined by International Dining Out For Life Spokesperson Mondo Guerra, designer and Project Runway veteran. 

Dining Out For Life is an international event benefiting over 60 AIDS service agencies throughout the United States and Canada. In 2016 Dining Out For Life Minnesota engaged over 40,000 diners, 250 volunteers, and raised over $270,000 for The Aliveness Project – making it one of the largest Dining Out For Life events.
