We often suggest having a dine-out or dine and share.  It is a great way to partner with a local business and support your organization.  Today, Chicago is participating in Dine Out for Life.  More than 3,000 restaurants around the country donate a portion of their proceeds from this one special day of dining to the licensed AIDS service agency in their city. More than $4 million dollars a year is raised to support the missions of 60 outstanding HIV/AIDS service organizations throughout North America.

Grab a friend, eat a meal, and support a cause.  This is totally BIG!
