Project Angel Heart is announcing Thursday, May 2nd, 2019, as the date for the 25th annual Dining Out For Life®, presented by Bank of America, in Denver and Boulder. Participating restaurants will donate 25 percent of sales on that date to support Project Angel Heart, a nonprofit organization that prepares and delivers medically tailored meals to Colordans living with HIV/AIDS, cancer, heart disease and other life-threatening illnesses.
While Dining Out For Life is an event taking place in 50+ cities, Project Angel Heart is proud to host the largest event internationally, with 32 percent more restaurants and 35 percent more dollars raised than any other market. With an estimated 250 local restaurants and breweries, 80,000+ diners and 200+ volunteers involved, it’s easy to dine out and give back at your favorite neighborhood eatery.
Over the past 25 years, Dining Out For Life has raised nearly $6.2 million to help Project Angel Heart prepare and deliver nutritious, medically tailored meals specifically for clients living with HIV/AIDS. The organization also provides meals for thousands of people living with cancer, end-stage renal disease, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and other life-threatening illnesses.
This year’s list of participating restaurants includes more than 200 returning restaurants and many new restaurants, including notable newcomers Death & Co, Palenque Mezcaleria, French 75, Julep, Señor Bear, Family Jones, and Ash'Kara. While all participants will donate 25 percent of food sales on the date of the event, more than 20 percent will also donate 25 percent of bar sales.
“Our local restaurant community is incredibly generous, making it so that all diners have to do to support a great cause is show up and enjoy," said Amy Daly, director of marketing and communications at Project Angel Heart. "Many restaurants have participated in Dining Out For Life for more than 10 years, and a handful have participated all 25 years.”
