Dine out, help your community

Help raise funds in support of AIDS Vancouver Island for the eighth annual Dining Out For Life.

Imagine you could help your community by simply dining out at one of your favourite local restaurants.

On April 25, thousands of diners, foodies and friends will choose from some of the best (and most generous) restaurants on Vancouver Island, to help raise funds in support of AIDS Vancouver Island for the eighth annual Dining Out For Life.

Make it a night to remember: Take your sweetie for a night on the town. Gather your friends together and fill up one of our participating restaurants. Treat the office to lunch. Try a new restaurant.

Making a difference couldn’t be more delicious.

Write on our wall and tell us where you will be dining on April 25. Do you have a favourite restaurant not on our list? Let us know.

All proceeds raised from Dining Out For Life remain on Vancouver Island. We are extremely grateful for the generous support of our participating restaurants, which donate 25 per cent of their food sales on a single night. Last year, we raised more than $35,000 from restaurants and individual donations.

Participating restaurants this year in the Comox Valley are: Atlas, Avenue, Breakwater, Mad Chef Café, Martine’s Bistro, Union Street Grill and Grotto and Zocalo Café.
