“Dine Out” To Support The Houston AIDS Foundation [@AIDSHelpHouston]

For one day in April – April 30, 2015 – more than 40 Houston-area restaurants are donating a percentage of sales to AIDS Foundation Houston (AFH) through their participation in the nationwide annual event, Dining Out for Life.

“I have been amazed about how the top restaurants in Houston have been so supportive of this event. Everyone at every price point can participate and feel great about eating out on April 30” comments Dining Out for Life event chair, Jessica Rossman.

Guests interested in supporting AIDS Foundation Houston through Dining Out for Life can enjoy breakfast, lunch or dinner throughout the day at a variety of restaurants, with a percentage of sales from the day committed to help end new HIV/AIDS infections and help those who are infected. For a list of the more than 40 (and counting) participating restaurants visit AIDSHelp.org/DiningOutforLife.

“We have a chance to end HIV/AIDS within our lifetime” explains Kelly Young, Chief Executive Officer of AIDS Foundation Houston. “Dining Out for Life not only raises money to end HIV/AIDS but also raises awareness about the disease.”

Dining Out for Life was created in 1991 by an ActionAIDS volunteer in Philadelphia. The event is hosted annually in cities across the U.S. and Canada by local service organizations, a mandate that ensures funds raised locally stay local. Since the inception, the national event has grown exponentially. In 2014, 53 cities hosted Dining Out for Life with participation from more than 3,100 restaurants. These efforts raised $4.13M in support of local service organizations, or 15.4% of local service organizations expenses in the fight against HIV/AIDS. 2015 is trending to be a record year, with more than 60 participating service organizations – Dining Out for Life’s largest year yet. AIDS Foundation Houston began participating in the national Dining Out for Life event in the inaugural year and has since raised thousands of dollars for support locally.

The 2015 menu of restaurants includes something for everyone, from foodie favorites to casual comforts. Find a restaurant now and make plans now to Dine Out for Life on April 30.

HOUSTON’S WORLD AIDS DAY LUNCHEON
FOCUSES ON ELIMINATING STIGMA

HOUSTON– AIDS Foundation Houston, Inc. (AFH) will continue its mission to end HIV/AIDS by presenting the World AIDS Day Luncheon on Monday Dec. 1st, 2014 at 11 a.m. at The Westin Galleria Ballroom.

Presented by Chevron, this year’s luncheon co-chairs are KPRC Local 2 News Anchor Dominique Sachse and David Chaumette from Chaumette, PLLC. Travis Torrence is serving as the honorary chair. The theme for this year’s luncheon focuses on Eliminating Stigma. In Houston and throughout the nation, stigma keeps thousands from annual HIV tests and shames those who are infected, keeping them from seeking and staying in medical care. Fighting HIV/AIDS begins with fighting stigma and it starts with education and understanding.

“Many Americans – and many donors – think that HIV/AIDS is a thing of the past or that other problems deserve more attention. But make no mistake: The AIDS epidemic is raging. It is being fueled by injustice and fanned by ignorance…Among marginalized populations, [sic] the AIDS epidemic is spiraling out of control.” – Scott Campbell, Executive Director of the Elton John AIDS Foundation.
