Restaurants around the county will participate in Dining Out for Life Thursday to raise funds for HIV prevention services and programs at the San Diego LGBT Community Center.

More than 70 restaurants and bars will participate in the 13th iteration of the fundraiser by donating 25 percent or more of their proceeds to the LGBT Community Center. Residents will have the chance to participate throughout the day when they go out for breakfast, lunch, dinner, or drinks.

“We are so proud that Dining Out for Life has a diversity of locations throughout San Diego that are supporting this important community driven fundraiser,” said Ian Johnson, the LBGT Community Center’s director of development. “We are grateful to all that local restaurants and bar owners for providing San Diegans so many great places to dine out to help end HIV.”

A full list of participating restaurants can be found online. Residents can also sign up to volunteer with the LGBT Community Center for Dining Out for Life by contacting Cheli Mohamed at 619-692-2077, ext. 202.
