Where:   Pacifico Restaurant, 220 College St, New Haven, CT
Type:   Other

Join in the fight against HIV/AIDS on Thursday April 28, 2011 by dining at Pacifico and 25% of your bill will be donated to AIDS Project New Haven.  Dining Out For LifeŽ is an annual fundraising event involving the generous participation of volunteers, corporate sponsors and restaurants. In 1991, Dining OutFor LifeŽ was created by an ActionAIDS volunteer in Philadelphia. Dining Out is now produced in over 55 cities throughout the United States and Canada.

More than 3,500 restaurants donate a portion of their proceeds from this one special night of dining to the licensed agency in their city. Nearly $4 million dollars a year is raised to support the missions of agencies throughout North America. With the exception of the annual licensing fee of $1,000, all money raised in these cities stays there.

Everyone has been touched by somebody who has been affected by HIV/AIDS.  In fact, nearly 7,500 new cases of HIV infections are reported worldwide each day. In the U.S. alone, someone is infected with HIV every nine and a half minutes. A significant fundraiser since 1990, Dining Out for Life offers a meaningful way to support a worthy cause that suffers from lack of funding. On a single day, nearly $4 Million is raised in the struggle against HIV/AIDS.
