Rick's Reviews: Dining Out For Life

The international organization Dining Out For Life (DOFL) began in 1991 as a direct response to the HIV/AIDS crisis that was gripping the nation. Participating restaurants commit to donating a minimum of 30 percent of their sales on the day of the event.  

The funds donated go directly towards helping people who are living with HIV/AIDS. In 2018, more than 50 local HIV service organizations partnered with 3,000 participating restaurants, 3,000 volunteers, and more than 300,000diners to raise an astonishing $4.1 million for people living with HIV/AIDS. All funds raised through a city’s DOFL event stay in that city to provide help and hope to people living with or impacted by HIV/AIDS.

Broward House is in its seventh year of participating in DOFL. All money raised stays in Broward County, supporting programs at Broward House. Want to show your support? Make plans to dine out on Thursday, April 25 for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Invite everyone you know to do the same.   

Compass, based in Palm Beach County, is participating in DOFL for the first time this year. The date for DOFL Palm Beach is April 30.
