DO IT: Bar AIDS is Back

Have a drink to benefit ActionAIDS

For the third consecutive year, ActionAIDS is hosting Bar AIDS at area bars and coffeeshops to raise money for vital health services in Philadelphia. Inspired by “Dining Out for Life” in which participating restaurants share a percentage of profits to help fight the disease, Bar AIDS is raising dollars and sharing educational materials all day today.

In addition to having an adult beverage, tea or coffee for a great cause, participating venues will also be selling raffle tickets to win an all-expense paid vacation for two to Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic courtesy of Apple Vacations and RIU Hotels and Resorts.

Volunteers from ActionAIDS, as well as the AIDS Law Project of Pennsylvania, Mazzoni Center and Philadelphia FIGHT will also be available to collect donations, share vital information about prevention and to help sell raffles for the event – from breakfast to lunch and late night.

Some of our favorite bars and cafes are participating this year, including The Bike Stop, Knock, Nineteen, Square 1682 at the Hotel Palomar, Tabu, Tavern on Camac, U Bar, Woody’s and Voyeur. Click here for a full list of destinations.
