While reading the newspaper this morning, I came across a fundraising event that allows you to make a big difference and will fit right into your busy schedule. This event is called “Dining Out For Life” and it’s happening TODAY, April 25, 2013.
All you have to do to help is go have a great meal at one of the many participating restaurants! Restaurants located all across Reno are giving a portion of their sales to Northern Nevada HOPES, Reno’s local community health center, to help individuals in our community affected by HIV & Aids. HOPES is a non-profit health center which offers a wide range of health care services. This is the 3rd annual Dining Out For Life fundraiser held by Northern Nevada HOPES, but the event has been held for many years in cities all over the nation.
Depending on the restaurant you choose, the amount donated by each restaurant will range from 10-100% of the total proceeds. To see a full list of the participating restaurants and the amount that they will be donating go to Dining Out for Life 2013. Remember, this event is only happening today, but if you do miss it you can still donate to Northern Nevada HOPES by going to their website.
There are many opportunities to get involved and help out our community. Many of them are as easy as going to get dinner at a local restaurant, so keep your eyes open for the next opportunity to get involved!
