AVOL Kentucky Announces 2019 Dining Out For Life Date
Local DOFL earns top ten national ranking prior to kicking off tenth annual event
Lexington, Kentucky (August 19, 2019) – AVOL Kentucky announced today their tenth annual Dining Out For Life® event will be held on Thursday, September 12. Dining Out For Life is an annual fundraising initiative where community members come together to participate in a day of eating out at restaurants that have committed to donating at least twenty-five percentage of a single day’s revenue. Locally, AVOL Kentucky has hosted the Bluegrass event for the past nine years, raising awareness and support for the fight against HIV. All funds raised through this initiative stay in the Commonwealth of Kentucky and support the mission and programs of AVOL. To date, the local event has raised over $650,000.
“Dining Out For Life allows AVOL to raise critically needed funds while making people more aware of the good work being done by our volunteers and staff in the communities we serve,” said Executive Director Jon Parker. “DOFL plays such an important role in our fight to end HIV in Kentucky while creating a day for the entire community to break bread together at so many of our community’s generous and hospitable partnering restaurants.”
Dining Out For Life is an all-day event and twenty five percent of proceeds from all meals purchased during breakfast, lunch, and dinner at contributing eateries all count towards AVOL’s goal of raising $120,000. This year over 55 restaurants will participate in Dining Out For Life here in the Bluegrass. A complete list can be found at www.dineoutlex.com.
Earlier this year, AVOL was recognized nationally, as a top-10 Dining Out For Life host organization.
