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.
