According to a survey by Rasmussen Reports, fifty-eight percent (58%) of Americans dine out at least once a week. If you are one of these people who prefers to let someone else do the cooking and make a difference while doing so, then you may have something in common with Pam Grier.
For the fifth year in a row, the star of Foxy Brown and Jackie Brown will serve as a spokesperson for Dining Out For Life, a delicious event that will donate a generous portion of the day’s proceeds to fund HIV/AIDS care, prevention, education, testing, counseling and other essential services. Dining Out For Life began in Philadelphia in 1991 and has since grown into an international event raising an average of $4 million annually. This best part is that the money remains in the communities where it was raised.
The event, sponsored by Subaru, will be held on Thursday, April 28th at 3,000 participating restaurants in nearly 60 cities across North America. Regions and cities celebrating Dining Out For Life include Albany, Anchorage, Asheville, Atlanta, Austin, Baltimore, Baton Rouge, Birmingham/Mobile, Broward County, Fla., Buffalo, Charleston, Chattanooga, Chicago, Columbia, Denver/Boulder, Detroit, El Paso, Fort Collins/Northern Colorado, Grand Junction/Western Colorado, Grand Rapids, Houston, Indianapolis, Inland Empire, Jacksonville, Kalamazoo/Southwest Michigan, Kansas City, Key West, Las Vegas, Lexington, Louisville, Memphis, Minneapolis/St. Paul/Greater Minneapolis, Nashville, New Haven, New Jersey, New Orleans, New York City, Norfolk/Virginia Beach, Northern Nevada, Orange County, Palm Beach County, Palm Springs, Philadelphia and the Delaware Valley, Phoenix/Prescott, Portland, Ore., Raleigh, Sacramento, San Diego, San Francisco, Seattle, Sonoma County, St. Louis, Tacoma/Olympia, Tampa Bay, Tulsa, Vancouver/Whistler, Vancouver Island and Washington, D.C.
