Philadelphia Restaurants Participating in Dining Out for Life 2014

ActionAIDS‘ 23rd annual Dining Out for Life (DOFL) takes place in Philadelphia on April 24th, with nearly 150 restaurants in the region taking part. If you’re new to the game, this is how it works: On that evening participating restaurants will donate 33 percent of every check to a variety of regional HIV/AIDS service organizations, including ActionAIDS, AIDS Delaware, and Planned Parenthood of Southeastern Pennsylvania. I love DOFL, because it’s such an easy, fun, and delicious way to give to a worthy cause.


ActionAIDS just released the above cute promo for it. Developed and created here in Philadelphia with ActionAIDS and Shooters, it's DOFL's very first animated ad. You can find the complete list of local restaurants participating below, divided into neighborhood/region. Look for your favorite spot, and make reservations early. Tables fill up fast.
