It’s that time of year again: the 18th annual Dining Out For Life event, in which 150 Seattle area restaurants will donate portions of their proceeds to the Lifelong AIDS Alliance, is happening this coming Thursday, April 28.
There are a number of Queen Anne restaurants participating in the fundraiser for either breakfast, lunch dinner, or all three. Check out the list of participating neighborhood spots:
EtsyRAIN’s 2nd Annual Spring Craft Show is coming to Lower Queen Anne this weekend! From 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, May 8 EtsyRAIN artists will pack into the Seattle Center’s Intiman Theatre, located at 201 Mercer St.
Admission to the show is a $1 suggested donation, which will go to the Lifelong Aids Alliance and canned or non-perishable food donations for the organization’s meal delivery program.
EtsyRAIN members like to help the community as much as they like to help each other. For each show, they choose a charity to support.
Lifelong Aids Alliance will be hosting a canned food drive at the event, as well as selling raffle tickets for gift baskets stuffed with full-sized, handmade craft donations from EtsyRAIN artists.
The first 50 customers at the show will also receive free ‘swag bags’ filled with treats by local artist. Check out the artists that will be at the show and get more information here.
The 17th Annual Dine Out For Life event is this Thursday, April 29, when 150 restaurants throughout Western Washington will donate 30 percent of each diner’s bill all day to support social services for those with HIV and AIDS. The proceeds will benefit the Lifelong AIDS Alliance, a non-profit organization committed to preventing the spread of HIV and providing advocacy and life support services, including the delivery of fresh meals and groceries to the hungry, for those in the community whose lives are affected by HIV.
“Dining Out For Life is a great way to support the community and have fun, doing something we do everyday. Everyone dines out, so why not dine out and have your meal make a positive difference?” said Lifelong spokesman Trevor DeWitt in a press release last week.
Participating restaurants in Queen Anne include Caffe Vita, Eat Local, Hilltop Ale House, McMenamins, Pasta Bella, Ponti Seafood Grill and Portage. See a full list of participating restaurants citywide here.
