Dine Out, Fight AIDS [Food and Dining]

Print
You'll sleep better for more than just a full belly.

I love food, exploring the best that Louisville has to offer, meeting new people, and of course if I can accomplish all of that in the name of great cause, all the better, (and makes the holiday season feel more important than bowl games which is generally hard to convince me of).  If you’re like-minded, please mark your calendars and plan to join your fellow Louisvillians tonight in support of the 15th annual Dining Out For Life event on Wednesday, November 30, 2011.

Presented by Brown-Forman, you may dine out at a participating restaurant and 25% or more of your bill will be donated to House of Ruth for the support of Glade House.  I particularly love the array of participating venues and am going to try and fit at least one lunch and two dinners in today because frankly I sleep better knowing I did a good thing locally on a full belly.

If you’re not familiar with the organization, the mission of House of Ruth is to care for individuals and families affected by HIV and AIDS in our community. We provide case management, housing assistance, advocacy and support for their physical, emotional and psychological needs. Please visit their website at www.houseofruth.net to learn more about House of Ruth.

Please support the restaurants and sponsors who have so generously contributed to Dining Out For Life throughout the year.

Every time you support a restaurant or a sponsor, please be sure to thank them for continuing to help us help people living with HIV and AIDS. You can check out www.diningoutforlife.com/louisville for participating restaurants to see a complete list of all the participating restaurants (list follows below).

Every person who Dines in 1 of the 52 Restaurants will be automatically eligible to register for the Grand Prize. If you would like to make a donation, envelopes will be provided at the participating restaurant of your choice. If you are unable to join everyone on Wednesday, November 30, but would still like to help support the mission, you can make a tax-deductible donation by check payable to House of Ruth, or you can call 587-5080 to make a MasterCard donation. Please mail check/money orders to:  Dining Out For Life c/o House of Ruth, 607 East St. Catherine Street, Louisville, KY 40203 (Attn: Cindy Good).
