This year, you have an entire week to show your support for Chicagoans affected by HIV and our local restaurant partners! DINING OUT FOR LIFE CHICAGO will take place from May 16th through May 22nd.

DINING OUT FOR LIFE CHICAGO helps TPAN to provide lifesaving health care and services to thousands of people living with and affected by HIV. We promote health and wellness for communities most impacted by HIV through sexual health, substance use services, mental health services, and community partnerships. This year, we stand in solidarity with the local restaurants that have stood by and supported our community and have been heavily impacted by the COVID-19 crisis. During DINING OUT FOR LIFE week, 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. We are not asking restaurants for donations this year 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 year after year. We have partnered with restaurants from every part of the city.

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 Individual or Business 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.To learn more about 2021 sponsorship opportunities reach out to TPAN's Manager of Events and Community Engagement, Charlie Jungwirth at
