In its 17th year, Dining Out For Life is an annual fundraiser supported by local volunteers, corporate sponsors and restaurants. This year’s event is Wednesday, April 27, and hours vary by establishment.
All funds raised through each participating city’s Dining Out For Life event stays in that area to help local residents. In Tampa Bay, the two nonprofits responsible for setting up and organizing the event are the Suncoast Hospice Foundation and Empath Partners in Care (EPIC), a member of Empath Health. For nearly 60 years, EPIC has provided comprehensive, wrap-around services for people living with HIV throughout Tampa Bay.
