Food & Friends Seeks Volunteers for 15th Annual Dining Out for Life

Attention D.C. Foodies:

Mark your calendars, because Thursday, March 10th marks the 15th annual Food & Friends Dining Out for Life fundraiser.

Dining Out for Life(DOL) welcomes diners from all over the Washington metro area to enjoy a meal at one of the 150 participating restaurants standing up against life-altering illnesses such as HIV/AIDS, cancer, and many more.

Restaurants involved in this event will give 25 to 110% of the proceeds directly to Food and Friends programs and clients.
Last year, more than 25,000 diners, 145 restaurants and 200 volunteer ambassadors participated in Dining Out for Life, raising more than $270,000 for the cause.

As of now, Food and Friends is in need of hundreds of volunteers to serve as DOL Ambassadors for the upcoming event. Volunteers will be promoting the event by spreading the word to friends, family, and colleagues about DOL. Ambassadors will also represent Food and Friends in each restaurant by thanking guests and raising funds via sweepstakes forms.

In return for their good will, volunteers will be entered into the US Airways Ambassador Challenge for a chance to win a $1,200 gift card from US Airways.
