Dining Out For Life on Thursday

It’s the easiest fundraiser you’ll participate in this year — all you have to do is pick up a menu and dine out.

On April 30, some of the best-loved restaurants across Vancouver Island will come together to take part in Dining Out For Life, AIDS Vancouver Island’s (AVI) annual fundraiser supporting Island programs and services for people living with and affected by HIV/AIDS.

For this one day, participating restaurants will donate 25 per cent of food sales to AVI. Now celebrating its 10th year, Dining Out For Life has raised more than $350,000 for programs and services across Vancouver Island.

Atlas Cafe, Avenue Bistro, The Breakwater (at Kingfisher Oceanside Resort), Mad Chef Cafe, Martine’s Bistro and Union Street Grill & Grotto are the local participating restaurants.
