This Thursday, April 27th, Project Angel Heart is holding one of its most important fundraisers of the year: Dining Out For Life. We encourage you to dine out for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and/or drinks at one of 250 participating restaurants and breweries around Denver because 25% of your check will be donated to Project Angel Heart. Project Angel Heart has hosted this event for 23 years, raising awareness and support for the fight against HIV/AIDS.
The link to all of the restaurants is below, but some of our top picks include Angelo's Pizzeria, City O’ City, Cherry Cricket, Denver Biscuit Co, Jax Fish House, Panzano, Park Burger, Root Down, Sweet Action, Tamayo and Vesta. Especially great is Steve’s Snappin’ Dogs will donate 100-percent of Thursday’s earnings (they’ve even created a signature frankfurter, the Angel Dog), and Voodoo Doughnut is donating proceeds the entire month of April from sales of their School Daze doughnut!
Project Angel Heart is a large organization of volunteers making meals and delivering them directly to home-bound people. There are three shifts of volunteers working every day, cooking up a myriad variations to suite every type of patient. For variety’s sake, there are very few repeats of a menu item in a 90-day time period, with exceptions being ones that are popular with clients. Project Angel Heart also modifies each day’s menu to best suit the nutritional needs of its clients, making multiple variations of dishes suited towards specific nutritional needs based on their illness, allergies, treatments, and religious beliefs. Volunteers are also crucial to Project Angel Heart’s mission, doing everything from bag decorating to meal prep and delivery. Vesta alum Chef Brandon Foster helms the kitchen, ordering, preparing, and executing operations at a massive scale.
Dining Out for Life is a national fundraising event for organizations that provide services to people living with HIV/AIDS in the U.S. and Canada. Don’t miss your chance to dine out (or get drinks, or ice cream) for this incredible organization on Thursday!
