365 Things to Do in Memphis #114: Dine Out For Life

Posted by Holly Whitfield | April 23rd 2019 3748 0

Go ahead and make your dinner plans for this week – assignment #114 on the 365 Things to Do in Memphis list is to participate in the annual Dine Out For Life week, which benefits the local Friends For Life chapter.

Here’s how it works: on the last week in April every year, Friends for Life releases a list of local restaurants who have been generous enough to offer some of their proceeds as a donation to Friends for Life. You go eat, and you’re giving back.

For 2019, Dine Out For Life Week is April 22 – 28. You eat at one of the participating restaurants, and a portion of the proceeds goes to the Friends for Life group, which works to prevent the spread of HIV and help those affected by HIV/AIDS live well.

Here’s the list. Special shout-out to Fratelli’s Cafe inside the Botanic Gardens, which will donate 75 percent of their all their sales during lunch to Friends for Life.
