Dining Out For Life is an annual, international fundraising event involving the generous participation of volunteers, corporate sponsors and restaurants. In exchange for their participation, restaurants are included in a city-wide marketing campaign in an effort to increase customer traffic. Dining Out For Life facilitates exceptional fundraising and awareness for HIV and related causes.
Last year, local participants and diners raised over $60,000 with this dining and fundraising experience. Your favorite restaurants partner with TPAN to support our programming and save lives right here, in Chicago.

In 2018, Dining Out For Life brought together more than 60 incredible restaurants and select bars for guests to choose from. This year, we hope to double that number! In exchange for their support, restaurants are included in a city wide awareness campaign to promote and raise funds for the important work that TPAN does.

Restaurant, diners and food establishments are the heart of Dining Out For Life and the fundraising the event provides to TPAN's work. If you would like your establishment to be involved, here's how!
Participants of Dining Out For Life agree to donate a predetermined percentage of sales from Thursday, April 25th to benefit TPAN’s mission and support our lifesaving services. Restaurants will display event posters and promotional materials before the event and their servers, managers and other restaurant personnel will promote the event to diners. On the night of the event, a TPAN volunteer Ambassador will be in the restaurant to thank guests, share information, answer questions, solicit and accept contributions and distribute and collect donation envelopes. Finally, restaurants will provide a check reflecting their commitment of sales from the night of the event.
TPAN will use the restaurant's name and unique features in promoting their involvement with the event. TPAN will produce high quality promotional materials (posters, bill stuffers, ads, etc.) and produce a large-scale publicity campaign to promote Dining Out For Life via local TV, web, social media and print media.
