Dine Out For Life Indy Gains 2nd 100% Restaurant For 24th April’s Event
INDIANAPOLIS—Mark your calendars for Dining Out for Life, Indy’s largest dining fundraiser, set this year for 24th April. Nearly 40 restaurants in the Indianapolis area will donate 25%, 50% or 100% of their entire day’s sales to fight AIDS in Indianapolis, and it’s as easy as can be for diners. There are no special menus or codes to mention —simply dine out and you can help fight AIDS.Dining Out for Life, an international event taking place in 60 cities on the very same day, raises money for HIV/AIDS organisations, and locally it benefits The Damien Cen-tre, Indiana’s largest and oldest AIDS service organisation, which is proud to celebrate 20 years of Dining Out for Life in Indiana. Proceeds directly benefit the centre’s clients by providing free HIV and STD tests, HIV care coordination and supportive services such as a food pantry, housing and career development programmes. Elisa Rogowski, Damien development director, noted, “In 2013 Dining Out for Life raised more than $80,000 for Damien Centre clients, 94% of whom are living in pov-erty. The Damien Centre’s services are al-ways free to the community, so fundrais-ers like Dining Out for Life are critically important to making the mission of The Damien Centre a reality. That mission is to allow persons in Central Indiana affected by HIV/AIDS to move forward each day with dignity, and to lead the fight to prevent the spread of HIV.”

So which restaurants will be participating in this year’s event? A lot of old favourites, a number of new spots and ones which organisers are sure the community will want to get reserved.Check out the still-growing list online at www.diningoutfor-life.com or www.damien.org where you’ll also find a map of restaurants. This year’s event will feature a range of local restaurants, in-cluding many returning favorites as well as new participants. Rogowski noted that Red Lion Grog House now has some competition for the top donor spot as the event has gained a second 100% contributor for the first time.“As our returning Champion Restaurant, Red Lion Grog House will again donate 100% of their day’s sales to The Damien Centre. New to the event this year, Champion Res-taurant Labor District Cafe, featuring what owner Travis Sealls calls ‘throwback casual comfort food,’ will also be donating 100% of sales,” she noted.Red Lion is on Virginia Avenue in Fountain Square, while the Labour District Cafe is located on the 2nd floor of the BMO (First Indiana Bank) Tower at Ohio & Pennsylvania streets downtown.Other returning eateries include Santorini Greek Kitchen, Cerulean, The Greek Islands Restaurant, Punch Burger, Arni’s Indy and South, Hoosier Park’s Winner’s Circle and Pita Pit downtown. Of those, both Pita Pit and Punch Burger are also owned by Sealls, showing true committment to the cause, Rogowski noted.New participating restaurants include Beefcake Burgers Greenwood, Siam Square, a new Pizza King location down-town, Bru Burger and Mama Irma Peruvian amongst others. Dining Out for Life International, hosted by Subaru, collec-tively raises more than $4 million each year to support local HIV/AIDS programming. Support for this event nationally has grown to over 250,000 diners, thanks in large part to the efforts of Dining Out for Life Spokesman Ted Allen, host of Food Network’s primetime competition series
