Dining Out for Life is an annual one-day fundraiser held on April 28th in nearly sixty cities across North America, when more than 3,500 restaurants will donate a generous percentage of each check to their local AIDS service organization. “Our goal is to raise $4 million in just one day of dining to address the increasing demand for AIDS care throughout the U.S. and Canada,“ says Dining Out for Life International Board President Stacie Walls-Beegle, adding “participating organizations provide critical life-saving services to many people living with HIV/AIDS.”
Subaru of America, Inc. is proud to mark it’s fifth year as International Host Sponsor of Dining Out for Life. According to Tim Mahoney, chief marketing officer of Subaru of America, Inc., “Subaru and its drivers have a long history of caring about community causes and we’re proud to play a part in helping to raise crucially needed funds in the fight against AIDS.” Subaru encourages their dealers and drivers to pledge support across the country for the fundraiser.
Helping to make a difference, Subaru dealers are teaming up with their local Dining Out for Life beneficiary to make this annual event a nationwide success. J. Dewey of AIDS-Related Community Services (ARCS) in Hawthorne, NY called the significant relationship that they have built with their local Subaru Dealer, Mid-Hudson Subaru, a “fantastic experience.” Employees of Mid-Hudson Subaru, the Wappinger Falls, NY dealership, voluntarily attend ARCS’ Dining Out for Life planning meetings and will hold a joint kick-off event with ARCS at a participating restaurant.
Subaru managers in San Diego and Houston are providing additional support for the Dining Out for Life non-profits in their area, while Prestige Subaru in Asheville, North Carolina has contributed funding to the Western North Carolina AIDS Project and is helping to promote the event locally. Mid-City Subaru in Chicago also provides helpful promotional support to their local AIDS service organization, EdgeAlliance.
