DINING OUT FOR LIFE 2016!
You may have seen the posters starting to go up, you may have seen posters showing up at your favorite restaurants and this year, I’m going to be an ambassador! If you dine out for breakfast, lunch and/or dinner at any of the 70 participating restaurants on THURSDAY, APRIL 28TH, 25% or more of your food and beverage purchase is automatically donated to the Alliance for Positive Health. You also have the chance to win two round-trip airline tickets with JetBlue Airways!
I have to be honest, before the training session I went to a few weeks ago, I knew of the organization but was really unaware of what exactly they did. The mission of the Alliance for Positive Health is “to reduce the impact and incidence of HIV/AIDS and other serious medical and social conditions.”
Just keep in mind:
$25 pays for 250 condoms that are available in local establishments, free of charge
$50 provides food for one client for one week
$65 pays for one HIV test and counseling session
$100 provides school supplies and clothing for a client’s child
$500 keeps our mobile testing van on the road for 1/2 a month
$1,000 provides emergency housing assistance for two clients for one month
You’ll be able to find me at Bel Cibo Fine Gourmet Foods and Spices in Schenectady for dinnertime so I hope to see you there (Make sure you make a reservation).
If you can’t make it, please consider donating online https://aidscouncilneny.ejoinme.org/DOFL2016 and by selecting me (Jessica Sims) as your ambassador! If you want more information on the Alliance for Positive Health or Dining Out for Life, be sure to check them out all over social media!
