PHILADELPHIA - Action Wellness is hosting the 32nd dining out for life, with over 50 participating restaurants and a special auction to raise funds to provide HIV care services to the Philadelphia community.
Dining Out For Life, The Annual Action Wellness Fundraising Event
Dining Out For Life, the annual Action Wellness fundraising event is back on Thursday, April 28, 2022. Action Wellness was founded in 1986 when 84 committed volunteers came together in Center City, Philadelphia, to form a community of care to provide services to people with AIDS. Shortly after, in 1991, the first Dining Out For Life took place. Since then, this event has raised millions of dollars for those living with HIV in the Philadelphia community. Due to the pandemic, the event had to be modified. Two years later, Dining Out For Life is back for a significant comeback.
On Thursday, April 28, participating restaurants will donate a portion of their sales to Action Wellness to help support those living with HIV in the Philadelphia community. Action Wellness knows that these are challenging times for the hospitality industry and that restaurants have faced unprecedented hardships over the past two years, so Action Wellness is hugely grateful for the restaurants that can participate this year.

They include deluxe accommodations, roundtrip airfare for two, and a travel specialist to make the booking for you. The auction will be open from Thursday, April 21, 2022, until Friday, April 29, 2022, at noon EST. Action Wellness' clients continue to battle the effects of COVID-19, and Action Wellness continues to support them through this pandemic. The money raised from this event will ensure that all of Action Wellness' clients do not face their illness or this pandemic alone.
