Do you love to eat? Do you love to do good? Well then, welcome to Dining Out For Life!
Dining Out for Life is an annual national event that happens one night only to support the fight against AIDS. This year the date is April 26th. It works like this: you go out to eat at a participating restaurant on the Dining Out For Life date, and the restaurant simply pledges a percentage of their sales to their local organization fighting AIDS. Easy peasy! In Jacksonville the Northeast Florida AIDS Network is supported through Dining Out For Life.
Restaurants are still signing up to participate this year, but last year in Jacksonville there were 18 restaurants participating. Restaurants volunteer to give a specific % of sales with some giving more than others. To see the most up to date list of restaurants go to Dining Out For Life’s Jacksonville page.
Some of the restaurants that have participated in previous years include:
Donated 50% of sales:
Lola’s Burrito Joint
Carmine’s Pie House
Donated 35% of sales:
Taste Buds Express
Derby on Park
Donated 25% of sales:
Pizza Palace San Marco
Black Sheep Restaurant
Joseph’s Pizza (Main Street)
Ale Pie House
Espeto Brazilian Steak House
Baby’s Badass Burgers (Truck #1)
Joseph’s Pizza (Atlantic Beach)
Jersey Mike’s Subs of Fleming Island (5-8PM)
After being 35-50% supporters at all of our restaurants over the last 9 years, (AND being a continued participating supporter this year), it was very disappointing not to see us mentioned in this article. We work hard to raise money and awareness for this cause every year, and would hope Jacksonville.com would do better research.
