Eight local restaurants are coming together this Wednesday, November 28, 2012 to offer Daytonians a unique dining experience in order to help raise critical funds and awareness for HIV/AIDS in honor of World AIDS Day.
Each participating eatery will donate a portion of their proceeds to AIDS Resource Center Ohio to support direct services for those living with HIV/AIDS and to provide education and testing to stop the spread of HIV. Originally launched in 2009 in Columbus, A Reason to Dine has been a great collaboration with local restaurants who support the work and mission of AIDS Resource Center Ohio and has offered Ohioans an opportunity to dine out at local restaurants to help lead the fight against HIV/AIDS.
Supporters can become a Dining Ambassador for A Reason to Dine. Dining Ambassadors sign up and commit to bringing a group to one of the participating restaurants. By posting a photo of their group at the restaurant that night on the A Reason to Dine Facebook page, they will be entered to win $150 dining package.
