Dine Out for Life

It's time again for the most effortless charity work you'll ever be asked to do!

Before y'all start whining, let me tell you how you can do a good thing and have fun doing it!

Lifelong Aids Alliance, (the result of the merge of Chicken Soup Brigade and the Northwest AIDS Foundation) is once again sponsoring Dine Out for Life. The LAA is dedicated to educating people against the spread of AIDS/HIV and helping those affected by it, with services ranging from meal delivery and getting patients to medical appointments to hospice care. Dine Out for Life is an annual event, with area restaurants donating a percentage of the food profits to LAA. LAA regularly gets 100+ restaurants involved, raising over $125,000 - money which stays in Seattle!

See where I'm going with this? All you have to do is go out to eat. Yep, that's it. Get some friends together, choose your participating restaurant, and have fun. Whoever would've thought doing a good deed could be so painless? [A note, though - booze sales don't count, so go ahead and rack up that bar tab, just be sure to order dessert! ;-) ]

My sister and I will once again be ambassadors at the 74th Street Ale House. Come see us for dinner, or find a place in your own neighborhood - there are enough restaurants participating that you're guaranteed to find something to suit your mood and palate!

Don't live in Seattle? Check here to see if your city does it! (and my apologies if it's already happened, but now you'll know to check for 2005!)
