Dining for Life

Austin’s Best Food Event September 12th and 13th

AUSTIN, August 4 2011:  Restaurant reservations are going fast for the 19th annual Dining for Life, voted along with the Hot Sauce Festival as Austin’s Best Food Event in the Austin Chronicle Best of Awards.  Dining for Life is this coming Monday, September 12 and Tuesday, September 13, at select Austin restaurants.

Dining for Life has raised over half a million dollars over the past 19 years, and its power lies in its simplicity: you eat at a participating restaurant and a substantial portion of your tab will directly fund HIV prevention outreach and care services right here in Austin.

The 60-plus participating eateries include Eastside Café, Mother’s Café, Olivia, Wink Restaurant & Wine Bar, Zocalo Café, Foreign & Domestic Food & Drink and Magnolia Café.

Diners are the biggest key to a successful night and Dinner Captains are the liaison between the diners, restaurants and AIDS Services of Austin.

This year’s event offers you the opportunity to be a Dinner Captain by selecting one of your favorite participating restaurants and inviting your friends, family and co-workers to join you in helping to insure the success for both the restaurant and for ASA, whose mission is to respond to needs of the Austin area by providing services that enhance the health and well-being of individuals and the community.
