Dining Out For Life Thursday, March 24

You’ve got to eat; why not support a good cause at the same time?

You’ve got to eat; why not support a good cause at the same time?

On Thursday, March 24, restaurants from across Vancouver Island and the Gulf Islands will join the fight against AIDS by donating 25 per cent of their food revenue from every meal. Enjoy a great restaurant meal, a great night out, and you pay nothing extra! Donations are of course welcomed and all money raised goes to AIDS Vancouver Island (AVI) , Vancouver Island’s largest community-based HIV/AIDS organization.

Diners will also have the chance to win a cruise for two from Expedia Cruise Ship Centres.

AVI supports local people living with HIV/AIDS. Many participating restaurants are offering breakfast and lunch too, and some even do takeout, all of which will benefit Dining Out for Life. And for every Stella Artois sold in participating restaurants on that day, 1$ will be donated to AVI.

What meetings or gatherings can you bring to a participating restaurant on March 24? If you’re going to dine out only once in March, make it Thursday, March 24. Participating restaurants in the Campbell River area are Fusilli Grill, Royal Coachman and Salmon Point Pub.
