Dining Out For Life Chicago 2019 - Eat, Drink, Give

Thank you, Chicago! Your support of Dining Out For Life Chicago helps TPAN provide lifesaving care.

Thousands of dining patrons and volunteers joined us last April to make Dining Out For Life Chicago a driver of care and services for more than 2,000 Chicagoans this year. Please check out the many participating locations who made last year's Dining Out For Life Chicago a success! Just by dining, drinking, and donating you help support compassionate health care and services for people affected by HIV and health disparities across Chicago.

Become a 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. CLICK HERE to download an overview of opportunities.

Dining Out For Life Ambassadors
The Dining Out For Life Ambassador Program is an excellent way to get involved in sharing TPAN's mission and message. If you like interacting and talking with people, this is for you! Each Ambassador is assigned to a local participating restaurant to represent TPAN on April 25th. We’ll make sure you have everything you need to be ready for event night. Every Ambassador receives easy, fun, and inspiring training from our TPAN team to help make the event and its mission a success.
