There are some causes that run so deep for us we cannot help but do our part here on the blog. Of all the organizations that we are committed to being a part, raising awareness and money for HIV/AIDS is something of personal interest. Scott tells the story here….
After such a fantastic experience with Food and Friends in Washington, DC, we were thrilled to join the Buffalo edition of this year’s Dining Out for Life on Tuesday, October 10th at Ballyhoo.
What is Dining Out for Life?
An annual dining fundraising event raising money for AIDS service organizations. In Buffalo, Evergreen Health strives to foster healthy communities by providing medical, supportive and behavioral services to individuals and families in Western New York challenged by chronic or life threatening diseases.
How does Dining Out for Life work?
Participating restaurants donate 25% or more of the cost of your meal to the fight against HIV/AIDS. All you have to donate is your appetite.
What do you do?
- Make plans to dine out on Tuesday October 10, 2017 for breakfast, lunch, dinner or more.
- Invite everyone you know to do the same. Reservations are highly encouraged.
- Spread the word via email on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, EVERYWHERE!
How are we involved?
Scott and I will be Dining Out at Ballyhoo in Buffalo (remember that awesome date we had awhile ago?) and functioning as Ambassadors for this year’s event! So we will be making the rounds drinking and schmoozing with all of you fine people who plan to attend Ballyhoo that evening in support for Dining Out! They will be donating 25% of all that evening’s proceeds to Evergreen so that they can continue to do great work helping those with chronic and life-threatening illnesses.

Don’t want to drink and drive? Yeah, please don’t.
Lyft Discount Code – “DINEOUTWNY” will provide 20% off a round trip Lyft ride on October 10th from 5pm-midnight.
So make plans with us on October 10th (one week from today!) to toast to helping fight the good fight – join us at Ballyhoo, and spread the word!! #chewstohelp
