This week, more than a quarter million diners are expected to dine out to raise money for HIV/AIDS programs. More than 65 restaurants in Pierce County are participating in the national Dining Out For Life event that takes place Thursday, April 26, 2012.
When: Thursday April 26, 2012
Where: At participating restaurants. Some of my favorites on the list are Tempest, Marzano, Stink, The Swiss, Fife City Grill, 1022 South, Primo Grill, Crown Bar, Asado, Masa, Pacific Grill and Corina Bakery. Find a full list here www.diningoutforlife.com/tacoma
Why: To support programs at the Pierce County AIDS Foundation.
How does it work: Just dine out at a participating restaurant and that restaurant pledges to give 25 percent of that day’s food and non-alcoholic beverage sales to support programs at PCAF.
How much money are we talking about? Last year’s event raised about $60,000.
