One day a year, the best thing to make for dinner is a reservation. On Thursday, April 25, 2013, several restaurants across El Paso will donate 25-50% of breakfast, lunch or dinner sales to support HIV/AIDS services in El Paso. All you have to do is gather your friends and family for a delicious meal at any of the participating restaurants, and help International AIDS Empowerment raise much needed HIV/AIDS funds for our community.
