Dining Out for Life with AOA, this Thursday

dining out for life 2013 logoDining Out for Life -- the annual fundraiser for the AIDS Council of Northeastern New York -- is Thursday. Here's how it works:

1. You go out to eat at a participating restaurant.

2. That restaurant donates a portion of the bill to the AIDS Council.

It's just about the easiest charitable thing you can do.

As in past years, AOA is captaining one of the restaurants. And this year out spot is the City Beer Hall in Albany. We'll be there for both lunch and dinner. Please say hi if you stop by.

We've had good times with people at dinner in previous years. So, if you'd like to eat with the AOA group -- and we hope you do -- please take a quick moment to RSVP here. It's just so we can organize a table. We're aiming to have dinner around 6 pm.

Comments

Does anyone know what percentage will actually be given to the AIDS council? I have seen signs for this, but none of them actually tell you what percentage is being donated which makes me think it's probably very small.

I believe it is 20%, but I bet AOA folks can confirm.

@Anne: 20% of the food and alcohol bill goes to the AIDS Council. Tthis year's 100% spot is Mingle in Albany. Some restaurants are also donating 100% on certain cocktails. (details)

That's great! I wonder why they don't advertise that more.

Say Something!

We'd really like you to take part in the conversation here at All Over Albany. But we do have a few rules here. Don't worry, they're easy. The first: be kind. The second: treat everyone else with the same respect you'd like to see in return. Cool? Great, post away. Comments are moderated so it might take a little while for your comment to show up. Thanks for being patient.

What's All Over Albany?
