On Thursday, July 19, 2012 Long Island will join over 3,500 restaurants and bars in more than 65 cities across the United States and Canada to stand together and raise more than $4,000,000.00 to fight HIV/AIDS. The Long Island GLBT Network is asking you to make a difference in our Long Island community by dining out on Thursday, July 19, 2012.
Participating restaurants in Nassau and Suffolk have pledged to donate 25% or more of their day’s profits to The Long Island GLBT Services Network to benefit programs to combat HIV/AIDS.
Through the 2012 Dining Out for Life event, The Network hopes to raise resources to support:
-Getting more people to know their status by increasing our HIV and STI testing services
-Support groups for people who recently learned they are HIV positive
-Outreach to individuals at highest risk and greatest need
-Increased prevention and education efforts to young gay and bisexual men of color — the largest growing percentage of new cases of HIV
-Launching new campaigns for HIV prevention
Some of the awesomely yummy restaurants participation on Long Island are Tula Kitchen in Bayshore (my favorite place to go!), Bagel Boss, Rain, Fuse and Taste 99. For a full list and more info click here! Then, let me know where we should meet for dinner on Thursday to dine out for life!
