May 16th through 22nd

Dining Out For Life Chicago 2021

A week-long experience to support Chicagoans affected by HIV and our local restaurant partners!

DINING OUT FOR LIFE CHICAGO enables TPAN to provide lifesaving health care and services to thousands of people living with and affected by HIV. This year, we stand in solidarity with the local restaurants who have stood by and supported our community. From May 16 through the 22nd dine in, order takeout/delivery or purchase a gift card from one of our restaurant partners and make a gift directly to TPAN to support our mission to serve people affected by HIV. This year restaurants will not be asked for donations, so personal gifts are all the more important. 

ORDER from any Dining Out For Life Chicago restaurant,  to support a local business that has stood by our LGBTQ and HIV-affected communities of Chicago. Support local.

DONATE to Dining Out For Life Chicago, to help TPAN provide lifesaving health care and services to thousands of Chicagoans affected by HIV and other health disparities during the pandemic.

Become a 2021 Sponsor

Dining Out for Life Chicago is a city-wide event produced and hosted by TPAN in partnership with international Dining Out For Life. In 2018, TPAN proudly became the new producer, host, and Chicago beneficiary of this well-known dining and philanthropic event. Dining Out for Life Chicago is MORE+ than a fundraiser. It brings together thousands of dining patrons – including many of the individuals and families who champion the equality and needs of HIV-affected and LGBTQ people. It allows everyday individuals to make a difference doing what they love: dining and gathering with friends in a favorite establishment that gives back through Dining Out for Life.

TPAN offers a full complement of sponsorship opportunities with valuable recognition and benefits for you and your business, to demonstrate your support for Chicago’s LGBTQ and HIV affected communities.
