Get ready to celebrate Birmingham’s 14th annual Dining Out For Life ® event on Thursday, April 27. Grab your friends and head to one or more of these 28 local participating restaurants to help raise funds and awareness for HIV services.
About HIV/AIDS in Birmingham
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, over 16,500 Alabamians are currently living with HIV.
While medical advances have made HIV manageable as a chronic disease, HIV rates in the South are still high and within epidemic proportions.
Because of this, AIDS Alabama’s prevention, transportation, mental health and housing services remain vital.
Each participating restaurant will donate up to 35% of every bill on April 27 to AIDS Alabama.
