Get The Word Out
Using Social Media to Promote DOFL
 
On Thursday, April 26, you will be the face of WNCAP for our community. But your advocacy doesn’t have to wait to begin on April 26. You can use social media channels - like Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram - to get the word out about Dining Out For Life. Social media is free, fast, and spreads the message of HIV Prevention & Care far and wide. Using social media to promote WNCAP is one of the best things you can do to fight HIV/AIDS in Western North Carolina.
 
The fastest and easiest way to support DOFL on social media are:
  • Like/Follow WNCAP on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and LinkedIn
  • Change your profile picture to the DOFL profile picture and change your cover photo to the DOFL cover photo
  • Before April 26, post something like: "Can't wait to Dine Out For Life on Thursday, April 26. Not only will I be enjoying a meal at one of my favorite restaurants. 20% of my bill will be donated to WNCAP for HIV Prevention & Care in our community!"
  • On April 26, take a picture of yourself dining out at your Participating Restaurant and post it on social media.
     
    Whether you’re a novice who enjoys a little Facebook from time to time, or a social media maven who only takes breaks from Instagram to update your Snap story, there are a ton of ways you can use social media to help. Check out our Social Media Tips page for Level 1 and Level 2 social media tips, as well as downloadable images and sample posts.

A Word From Our Sponsors
Prestige Subaru & Other Sponsors Make DOFL Possible
 
 
Dining Out For Life 2018 is presented by Prestige Subaru. Like most nonprofit organizations, WNCAP depends on the generosity of sponsors to make our fundraising events possible. But Dining Out For Life is unique in that it is 100% underwritten by an extremely generous and community-focused local company - Prestige Subaru. 
 
While Subaru sponsors Dining Out For Life International, Asheville is one of the very few DOFL cities that is specifically sponsored by a local Subaru dealership, and not the larger Subaru corporation. So join all of us at WNCAP in thanking our Presenting Sponsor, Prestige Subaru, and all of our other sponsors, listed below. We couldn't fight HIV in WNC without you!

Don't Miss the DOFL Afterparty
 
It's hard work spreading the word about Dining Out For Life. Why not unwind with dancing, drinks, and drag?

And The Prize Goes To...
Fill Out a Donation Envelope and Enter the Grand Prize Raffle
