The Return of Dining Out for Life!

logo-descriptionHello ARCS friends and supporters:

My name is J. Dewey, and I’m the Director of Public Relations and Resource Enhancement for ARCS. I’m very excited to announce that ARCS will be bringing back Dining Out for Life, our restaurant fundraising event, for 2011. Dining Out for Life is an international event hosted by local HIV/AIDS charities, with over 60 participating cities and regions across North America. Food Network star (and former Queer Eye guy) Ted Allen and renown actress Pam Grier are our spokepeople!

On the fourth Thursday of April each year, participating restaurants will donate a certain percentage of their income to ARCS. So, the more YOU dine out at these restaurants, the more they’re able to contribute to helping our programs and services for Hudson Valley residents dealing with HIV/AIDS.

Though it seems like a long way off, please mark your calendars now for Thursday, April 28, 2011! We’ll be working diligently to sign up restaurants, get volunteers involved, recruiting table captains and diners, and putting together a media campaign. If you’re a restaurant owner – or if you’re a frequent patron of a particular restaurant you think would like to participate – contact me at jdewey@arcs.org and we’ll send you all the information on becoming a DOFL restaurant! You can also sign up for our e-mail newsletter to stay in the loop on all our upcoming events.

MUCH more information coming soon!

Thank you very much for your interest in ARCS and our clients in need.

J. Dewey
