Dining Out For Life is Thursday, April 30, 2020
 
Save the date for Dining Out For Life (DOFL) on Thursday, April 30, 2020. Now in its 19th year, Dining Out For Life is the largest restaurant-led charity benefit in Asheville.
 
On Thursday, April 30, 100+ restaurants, breweries, and coffee shops will donate 20% of gross sales to WNCAP, resulting in the biggest day of HIV/AIDS awareness and fundraising in Western North Carolina.
 
Check out the list of 2020 participating restaurants here.
 
 
There are many ways you can join in this amazing event. The best way is to volunteer as a Dining Out For Life Ambassador. DOFL Ambassadors choose a participating restaurant, pack it full of their friends, family, and colleagues, then speak with diners about the event. Ambassadors distribute envelopes where diners can enter into a raffle for three great prizes - and perhaps donate a little extra to HIV prevention and care.
 
Can't Ambassador this year? Consider becoming a Dining Out For Life Table Captain. Table Captains will reserve a large table at one of the participating restaurants, invite 10 or 12 of their closest friends, and encourage them to fill out a raffle/donation envelope. Go ahead, order that extra appetizer or bottle of wine - it's for a good cause!
 
 
Another great way to help WNCAP is to share about Dining Out For Life on social media! Mark yourself as "Going" to the Facebook event, then invite your friends to do the same. Sending an email or picking up the phone works great, too. 
 
Make your reservations today for Dining Out For Life on Thursday, April 30, 2020. Let's raise a glass to all those restaurants who are generously giving back to their local community.

Asheville Sculptor Shines Light on HIV/AIDS in the Black Community
 
It is fitting that on National Black HIV/AIDS Awareness Day, local artist DeWayne Barton unveiled a sculpture in the Asheville Peace Garden shining a light on HIV in the African American community.
 
The multi-media installation will feature information on the history of the HIV epidemic and current statistics in the Black community, education and resources, along with a poem from Mr. Barton's book, Return to Burton Street.
 
African Americans are disproportionately affected by the HIV epidemic, accounting for 53% of new diagnoses in the South. Black Women account for 67% of all women diagnosed in the South.
 
Stay tuned for more information on the official unveiling this spring. In the meantime, consider booking an Asheville Black History and Art Tour with Hood Huggers International.
 
DeWayne Barton is a Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Culture of Health Leader. He was the recipient of a 2016-2017 NC Arts Council Mary B. Regan Artist Residency grant. Barton is co-founder of the Burton Street Community Peace Gardens and serves on the African American Heritage Commission.
