3 Ways to Participate

Dining Out For Life® is an annual fundraising event where community members come together to participate in a day of eating out at restaurants that have committed to donating a percentage of their profits to AIDS service agencies in their city. The Aliveness Project facilitates DOFL in Minnesota.


Eat out at one of the participating restaurants on Thursday April 26th. Better yet, organize a whole group of friends and dine together.


Donate directly and help people living with HIV lead healthy & self-directed lives through the services of the Aliveness Project. DONATE HERE.


Become a DOFL Ambassador and volunteer at one of the participating restaurants to help diners understand DOFL and encourage them to give. MORE INFO...
