Do you want to play a vital role in the success of Dining Out For Life? 

Volunteer as an Ambassador on April 30, 2020!  The Aliveness Project needs 200+ volunteer hosts at the 150+ participating restaurants. In 2019, Ambassadors raised over $74,000 in additional donations.

Ambassadors represent The Aliveness Project at restaurants on the day of the event. For one or more meals, you will:

  • invite friends, family, and co-workers to your restaurant
  • welcome and thank diners
  • encourage participation in our prize drawing and additional donations

Ambassadors have the option of working with a partner, so it’s a great activity to do with a friend, classmate, or co-worker.  Aliveness provides an hour long training session and all the materials you need to be successful.  No prior volunteer experience is necessary.  Have fun while having a huge impact on your community!

There are other ways to volunteer for Dining Out For Life:

  • Photography – Take photographs at participating restaurants.
  • Materials Assembly – Organize all the print materials, including posters, stickers, information packets, and prize lists, for ambassadors and restaurants.
  • Materials Distribution– Drive materials to our participating restaurants.

Fill out an application to get started.  Questions? Contact our Volunteer Manager, Eamon Whiteaker-Smith, at 612.822.7946 ext, 221 or eamon@aliveness.org with any questions.
