Dine Out for Life returns to Palm Springs, supports those impacted by HIV

Dine Out for Life is returning to Palm Springs today. 

Local restaurants, bars, and cafes take part in the fundraising event on behalf of DAP Health. 
DAP Health’s programs and services have included primary care, infectious diseases, gender-affirming care, LGBTQ+ care, mental health, dentistry, harm reduction, recovery services, affordable housing, social services, and HIV prevention, testing, and treatment. 

"With the absorption of Borrego health, we now serve 85,000 patients and our HIV/AIDS services have doubled," said Daniel Vaillancourt, an Ambassador for DAP Health. "This event is impactful because all the money raised from Dining Out for Life goes towards HIV/AIDS services."

Sales percentages anywhere from 30% to 110% will go towards serving those who are living with or impacted by HIV. 

"We have more than 80 restaurants, cafes, and bars participating," said Vaillancourt. "Each of those decide how much of their proceeds from the day they want to give to DAP Health."

Dine Out for Life is an effort that takes place across North America, over 50 cities partake. Over 100 million dollars have been collected from the fundraising event.

"Despite its small size, Palm Springs has come into the top 3 markets money wise. We beat other cities like San Francisco, New York and LA. Last year 72 restaurants raised more than $270,000 for DAP health.
