Dining Out For Life

Thousands of diners ate ‘like a hero’ at 50 restaurants located throughout Hampton Roads at the sixteenth annual Dining Out For Life event produced by the LGBT Life Center. Participating restaurants pledged to donate at least 25% of each diners checks to the LGBT Life Center. Diners also had an opportunity to make additional donations to the LGBT Life Center to be entered into a raffle for prizes, including two round trip tickets on Southwest Airlines. This annual event raises tens of thousands of dollars to further the Life Center’s programs that support persons affected by HIV/AIDS in Hampton Roads.
