Dining Out for Life returns, Capitol Hill volunteers needed

25 Capitol Hill restaurants are participating in this year’s Dining Out for Life event on April 25, donating 30% of proceeds to the Lifelong AIDS Alliance and the fight against illness and hunger in the community.

The list of the do-gooder participating restaurants that you’ll want to eat at that day is below.

But before diners can dig in for a good cause, volunteers are needed to welcome guests, answer questions about Dining Out For Life, and collect donations at participating restaurants.

DOFL09_CoastersHere are the top 5 reasons why you should volunteer, according to Dining Out for Life:

  1. See your peeps. Packing the restaurant with friends, family, and co-workers is a great way to maximize your volunteer experience. Request that your shift is held at one of your favorite restaurants from the list of those participating (pending availability).

  2. Be inspired. Often patrons will share touching stories as to why they chose to participate in Dining Out For Life. Learning about how HIV/AIDS has affected so many of us is powerful — and makes your volunteer experience that much more rewarding.

  3. Giving back was never this easy (or fun). What other volunteer opportunity has you meeting new people, visiting with friends, and talking about a great cause all while hanging out in some of Seattle’s coolest restaurants and bars?

  4. We could not do it without you. The ambassador’s role is vital to the success of this event. One-third of the total dollars raised at Dining Out For Life come from additional cash donations resulting from conversations between patrons and their ambassadors.

  5. Be a part of something big. The funds raised on April 25th support Lifelong’s work empowering people living with HIV/AIDS and other chronic conditions to lead healthier lives. As an ambassador at Dining Out For Life, you are helping save lives!

An average shift ranges from 3-6 hours. Interested volunteers can register online at www.llaa.org/DOFLvolunteer and fill out the volunteer ambassador application.

One thought on “Dining Out for Life returns, Capitol Hill volunteers needed

  1. Thanks for posting, CHS! I wanted to add one small note….there is still time for restaurants to sign-up for Dining Out For Life. Historically, Capitol Hill has been our most active restaurant community for this event with the most restaurants participating. The more restaurants involved, the more funds raised supporting our programs. The participation agreement can be found here: http://www.llaa.org/events/dining-out-life/2013-restaurant-participation-agreement

    Thank you to the amazing Capitol Hill community for your support of this event. See you on April 25th!
