The premise is simple - go out, have some drinks, eat some food, and support a cause. The cause is a great one, too - raising dollars for local HIV/AIDS service organizations. In the case of Grand Rapids, that cause will be The Grand Rapids Red Project. This event, Dining Out For Life, is scheduled for Thursday, April 24th this year.There are a ton of participating restaurants throughout Grand Rapids, so you can pick your favorite eatery, have some dinner, and feel good about it because you're helping out a good cause! Depending on the restaurant, anywhere from 25% - 50% of your bill will be donated directly to the Grand Rapids Red Project.

Some participating restaurants include: The Green Well (donating 25%), Bostwick Lake Inn (25%), Gilly's at the B.O.B. (25%), Grand Rapids Brewing Company (%25), Brewery Vivant (25%) and a ton more!
