Like many other bloggers I presume, press releases and event announcements roll into my in-box on a pretty regular basis. I could hardly post about all of them without turning MFWT into a public PR shill machine. However, once in a while, an announcement comes through the wire that not only ties in to the core topics here – wine and food – but also represents a great cause.
Dining Out For Life is one such event. Next Thursday, May 1, 2008, over 200 dining establishments in the greater Philadelphia area will be participating in this annual, one-night charitable dining extravaganza. Each participating restaurant will donate 33% of your total bill to Action Aids, an organization that leads the local fight against HIV and AIDS.
Check out the list of participating restaurants. Many are offering both lunch and dinner as part of the event. It can be a busy night out but it’s well worth joining the crowds, as you can enjoy a great meal and make a difference in people’s lives at the same time.
