For 355 area restaurants, today will see more than the average service. From Anthonys Pizza to Zuni Cafe, eateries all over the metro area will be celebrating Dining Out for Life, an annual event presented by Project Angel Heart.
Participating restaurants will donate 25% of their profits to Project Angel Heart, which in the past eighteen years has delivered millions of meals to men, women and children suffering from life-threatening illness. Proceeds from the event account for 20 percent of the nonprofits total budget; organizers are hoping for 80,000 diners today, which will raise approximately $380,000.
Dining Out for Life is a great opportunity for people to make a difference in the life of someone battling illness by doing something they enjoy: eating out, says Erin Pulling, Executive Director of Project Angel Heart. In light of the current economy, its also a great way to patronize local restaurants while supporting a great cause.
Its a no-brainer: Toast the beginning of summer dining while helping local restaurants and those in need. Visit www.projectangelheart.org or call 303-830-0202 for participating restaurants and other information.
