Dining Out For Life 2018 is recruiting Ambassadors and Restaurants


On April 26, 2018, The Damien Center is hosting Indy’s largest dining fundraiser, Dining Out For Life (DOFL)! DOFL raises much-needed funds to help The Damien Center continue to fight HIV in our community and support those affected by it.

DOFL would not be possible without the 50+ participating local restaurants, bars and breweries, who on April 26, 2018, will support The Damien Center by giving a percentage of their proceeds (25%, 50%, or 100%) for that one day to us. Their generosity will help us continue fighting HIV!

How can you get involved in Dining Out For Life?

Making a difference is as easy as going out to eat!

The easiest way for you to help support us on April 26, 2018 is to simply dine out at one of our participating restaurants, bars and breweries (check out the participants here).  No coupons or vouchers are needed to participate in DOFL- the restaurants, bars and breweries agree to give us a percentage of ALL sales on April 26.

But we also know that some of you out there want to go above and beyond just eating out on April 26 and for that we present: Dining Out For Life Ambassadors. Ambassadors are our all-star volunteers who spend a few hours on April 26 at one of our participating restaurants, bars and breweries telling people about HIV and The Damien Center and helping us raise money. If it sounds a little overwhelming, don’t worry! If you can commit to one training session and a shift on the day of the event, we’ll make sure you are well equipped with the knowledge, materials, scripts, and action plans to be successful.

And to any restaurant owners who may be reading? Your participation is critical in this amazing fundraising event. In exchange for your incredible generosity in giving us a percentage of your proceeds on April 26, we will meet or exceed many promotion benefits by securing millions of media impressions and spreading the word. On top of all our promotional benefits, our Ambassadors will work on recruiting diners for your restaurant. And besides the warm feeling you’ll get from knowing you did something awesome for your community, we’d like to add that some of our established Dining Out For Life restaurants, bars and breweries report that they are not only busy the day of the event, but they also see a lot of return business from DOFL customers who honor their community-minded spirit all year long.
