Dine Out For a Cause: Raising Money For HIV/AIDS Awareness in South Florida and Beyond

On Thursday, more than 3,000 restaurants in more than 50 cities across the nation will participate in Dining Out For Life, an annual event to raise awareness and donations for HIV/AIDS care, prevention, education, testing, counseling and other essential services. 

The proceeds collected in each city will be used for programs and awareness efforts in their local community. In south Florida, Broward House will be the local host and beneficiary organization for the fifth consecutive year. 

Broward House (BH), located at 1726 SE 3rd Ave. in Fort Lauderdale (client administration officer), is a not for profit social services organization with nearly 30 years of providing services for our community impacted by HIV and other health concerns.

In 2016, BH had more than 8,000 contacts with individuals through their prevention/education, testing, case management, assisted and independent living programs and their counseling and substance abuse treatment programs.

BH President and CEO Stacy Hyde states, “We invite everyone to go out and eat at one of our generous restaurant partners on April 27th and support our mission to provide care and prevent HIV. We currently have 22 committed and invite more restaurants to participate.”

Last year, the event raised just over $28,000 in Broward County with 22. South Florida strives to expand the participation to meet (an even surpass) cities such as Philadelphia, which have over 200 participating restaurants!

There are various restaurants participating in Dining Out For Life 2017 during breakfast, lunch, and/or dinner. For a full list of participating locations, click here.
