“Dining Out For Life” East Bay (2023)

On Thursday, September 28th, join Project Open Hand for our 5th annual foodie event, Dining Out For Life East Bay. When you dine out at participating restaurants in Berkeley, Oakland, and Emeryville, a portion of your bill will go towards providing nutritious meals to those living with critical illnesses in the East Bay.

Dining Out For Life supports life-saving services for people living with HIV/AIDS. By dining out with your friends and family at participating restaurants on September 28, you are providing these services for your neighbors living with HIV/AIDS in the East Bay.

Visit www.diningoutforlife.com/eastbay to see participating restaurants, enter the raffle, and volunteer at the event.

Disclaimer: Please double check event information with the event organizer as events can be canceled, details can change after they are added to our calendar, and errors do occur.

Cost: FREE*
*When you dine at participating restaurants in Berkeley, Oakland, and Emeryville, a portion of every bill will be donated to Project Open Hand. The cost to participate in this way will vary depending on which restaurant you dine at. We also have a raffle, with pricing starting at $5. When you dine out on event day, you can enter the raffle for free. You can also enter the raffle for free without dining out -- just create a "fundraising champion page" on our website. You create a page by signing up with your name and contact into. Creating a page gets 1 free raffle entry. Reaching additional fundraising milestones will earn additional entries.
