Fifteen El Paso restaurants participate in annual Dining Out for Life event


Fifteen local El Paso restaurants have generously agreed to donate 25% of their diners’ food bill to the Border AIDS Partnership as part of the annual Dining Out For Life event on Thursday, April 27.

The annual fundraising event involves more than 3,000 restaurants throughout the country that generously donate a portion of their proceeds from the one special day of dining to the licensed AIDS service in their city, in El Paso, that’s the Border AIDS Partnership.

More than $4 million dollars is raised each year to support the local AIDS organizations throughout North America. Each year, El Paso restaurants team up with local ‘celebrity’ ambassadors to promote the event. As always, we welcome you to join NC9 ambassadors Faran Fonczak, Daniel Marin, Patrick Hayes, Linda Ong and Beau Bagley at their participating restaurants!  All participating restaurants are for dinner unless otherwise noted.
