Dining Out For Life
Lately I have waxed poetic about how much I adore my alone time, and I do adore it. However, after a certain point of self satisfying activities such as drinking wine and organizing your photos, or sleeping in late, or counting your pennies as you save up for the China Cabinet you love so much you realize that your life has become pretty self-centric. This is important sometimes, but it's also equally as important to be a contributing member of society, so when the opportunity arose to volunteer for Dining out for Life I jumped at the chance.
Dining Out For Life is an international fund raising effort that teams up with restaurants in cities across the country, and the world, to raise money for local AIDS Organizations. Chicago's night is coming up on April 28th and I will be serving as an ambassador at one of my favorite places, Bistro Campagne. A rustic French restaurant thats has never let me down, and I have dined there on many occasions.
If you live in Chicago stop by one of the many participating restaurants and grab on bite on the 28th. A portion of every sale will go directly to Edge Alliance, an organization dedicated to providing support to homeless people and families afflicted by AIDS. Not a Chicagoan? Check out the Dining Out For Life website and see when your city is hosting, it's a perfect excuse to try out a new restaurant and help people in the process!
My friends, it doesn't get much sweeter than that.
