How you can support our local restaurants and win JetBlue tickets

October 9, 2020

Join us for the most satisfying meal you’ll ever eat. On Tuesday, October 13, Western New York will take part in the 18th annual Dining Out For Life. This year, due to COVID-19, we are encouraging patrons to order take out from the list of participating restaurants and support our local restaurant community. Coronavirus has devastated the restaurant industry and now, we want to give back to the restaurants who have graciously donated to our HIV supportive services over the years. That means we are not asking for donations from participating restaurants this year; instead, they keep 100% of their sales.

We are encouraging restaurant patrons to consider supporting Evergreen Health by making a donation to our HIV support services. Every donation made will go to support essential services and programing that increase the health outcomes of people living with HIV. Thanks to our sponsor, KeyBank, all donations made between October 13 and 31 will be matched dollar for dollar up to $12,000. That means your donation of $20 will actually be $40! The more you can give to Evergreen’s HIV services, the better. Learn more about the HIV care we provide to the community here.

Any donation will also enter you into a raffle for fantastic prizes, including:

  • Two round-trip tickets on JetBlue
  • A private tasting and tour for six at Lockhouse Distillery
  • One of five $100 gift certificates to a DOFL restaurant
  • An iPad Pro

Donations can be made by clicking this link or by mailing a check to: Evergreen Health Foundation, P.O. Box 1106, Buffalo, NY 14201. Make sure your check is payable to “Evergreen Health Foundation.”

There are many ways to participate in Dining Out For Life. Check out our website for participating restaurants in Western New York and make plans to order take out on Tuesday, October 13. You can feel great knowing you are supporting our local restaurant industry. Invite others you know to do the same. Spread the word on your social media channels like Facebook, Twitter and Instagram and be sure to tag us. Lastly, donate to Evergreen Health’s HIV supportive services and be entered to win a prize. It feels good to give back!
