ALBANY – The AIDS Council of Northeastern New York will hold the 11th Annual Dining Out For Life® event on Thursday, April 24. Over 60 area restaurants – from Plattsburgh to Hudson and throughout the Capital Region – will donate a percentage of their sales to help fight HIV/AIDS. Patrons simply have to donate their appetites on April 24 to support the AIDS Council.
“We are delighted that so many restaurants have joined us for Dining Out For Life this year,” said the AIDS Council’s Executive Director, Michele McClave. “In addition to our longtime participants, we have 10 new locations participating.
As an incentive to dine out, the AIDS Council holds a drawing in conjunction with the event. “Diners can enter our drawing at a participating restaurant on April 24,” said McClave. “We have two amazing prizes - A two-night stay at the Atlantis Bahamas and a two-night stay for two at Loews Portofino in Orlando with tickets to Universal Studio. It’s a wonderful and easy way to support people living with HIV/AIDS in your community just by going out to eat.”
This year’s local Dining Out For Life participating restaurants include:
The Brook Tavern, Circus Café, Hattie’s Restaurant, Longfellows Hotel, Restaurant and Conference Center,
Mexican Connection Restaurant & Tequilaria, Olde Bryan Inn, Scallions Restaurant, Wheatfields Restaurant & Bar
