Denver, CO, March 06, 2020 --(PR.com
)-- Project Angel Heart today announced Thursday, April 30, 2020, as the day when Denver and Boulder area diners can dine out and give back for Dining Out For Life®, presented by Bank of America. When diners visit participating restaurants for breakfast, lunch, or dinner on April 30, the businesses will donate 25 percent of that day’s sales to support Project Angel Heart, a local nonprofit organization that prepares and delivers medically tailored meals for Coloradans living with HIV/AIDS, cancer, heart disease, and other life-threatening illnesses.
Dining Out For Life is an international event that takes place in more than 45 cities across the United States and Canada and raises more than $4 million annually for organizations that serve people living with HIV/AIDS. Colorado-based Project Angel Heart is proud to host the largest event internationally, with 58 percent more participating restaurants than any other market. In 2019, 231 local restaurants and breweries, 80,000+ diners, and 200+ volunteers participated in Dining Out For Life, raising more than $350,000 to help Project Angel Heart prepare and deliver nutritious, medically tailored meals specifically for clients living with HIV/AIDS.
“At Bank of America, we are committed to supporting the resources necessary to help individuals and families create a path toward lifelong stability by ensuring their basic needs are met,” said Raju Patel, Denver Market President. “Access to healthy food is critically important, especially for people facing life-threatening health issues. We’re pleased to once again be the presenting sponsor of Project Angel Heart’s Dining Out For Life event to help safeguard those in our state who suffer from a debilitating illness so that they won’t have to face additional, expensive health setbacks due to malnutrition.”
This year’s list of participating restaurants includes more than 200 returning restaurants and many new restaurants, including notable newcomers Morin, American Elm, Chow Morso Osteria, and Bacon Social House. While all restaurants will donate 25 percent of food sales on the date of the event, nearly 50 of them will also donate 25 percent of bar sales.
"This is a wonderful community event because of the high level of participation among local restaurants, and all dollars stay here in Colorado to help neighbors in need," said Amy Daly, director of marketing and communications at Project Angel Heart. “It's a win for everyone - dine out, give back, and enjoy a fun evening while supporting the community.”
In appreciation for supporting the event and Project Angel Heart, diners will have the opportunity to be entered into a drawing to win a $2,500 gift card from local event sponsor King Soopers. A host of sponsors support Dining Out For Life, including presenting sponsor Bank of America, Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield as the heart-healthy dining sponsor, and Tito’s Handmade Vodka as the official cocktail sponsor.
