We know the economy is still bad, but if you’re even thinking about going out for breakfast, lunch or dinner, we encourage you to do so this Thursday, April 26. It’s the annual “Dining Out For Life®” event, when more than 130 St. Louis-area restaurants donate some or all of their proceeds that day to Saint Louis Effort For AIDS, the St. Louis area’s oldest AIDS service organization.
Over the past 18 years, “Dining Out For Life®” has raised more than $2.4 million for EFA, with all of those funds staying in St. Louis to help prevent the spread of HIV/AIDS through education, and providing support to people living with HIV/AIDS.
For information on participating restaurants visit the website or call 314-645-6451.
St. Louis Cardinals Hall-of-Famer Ozzie Smith leads the effort as Honorary Chairperson, as he has for the last 11 years. Check out Ozzie promoting DOFL on Monday morning’s News 4 Awake program on KMOV-TV.
