Dining Out for Life
October 9, at over eighty restaurants throughout Western New York
Ellen and Steve Gedra of The Black Sheep are the 2018 honorary co-chairs for one of WNY’s most beloved—and easiest to support—fundraisers. All you have to do is go out to breakfast, lunch, or dinner (or all three) on Tuesday, October 9. Participating restaurants donate twenty-five percent or more of the proceeds for that day to Evergreen Health, which has been fighting HIV/AIDS and providing services to those affected by disease since 1983. Reservations are encouraged; see the website for a complete list of restaurants. Dining Out for Life is presented by Evergreen Health and KeyBank.
