For the last 21 years, the restaurant community has united for this one special day to support Moveable Feast, a nonprofit organization that provides meals and nutritional counseling to people and their families living with severe illnesses, such as HIV/AIDS, breast cancer and other life-threatening conditions.  Moveable Feast delivers meals to Baltimore City, the 5 surrounding counties and all 9 counties on Maryland’s Eastern Shore.

By participating in Dining Out For Life and contributing a percentage of your total food and beverage sales on Thursday, September 18, your restaurant will:

  •   Attract new patrons and boost business;
  •   Promote your image as a philanthropic and community-minded restaurant; and
  •   Help our neighbors in need.  Chances are you, your employees or your regulars know   someone who is affected by HIV/AIDS or breast cancer.

Each year Moveable Feast launches an extensive promotional campaign, including radio spots, newspaper ads, internet and social media alerts, and postcards to create a countywide buzz around this event and to advertise your participation in this worthy cause.  Your restaurant will also have a dedicated ambassador whose sole responsibility is to drive diners into your establishment on the night of the event.  Your ambassador will be your very own marketing and PR resource, committed to making sure your restaurant is bustling all night long.

Dining Out For Life is a wonderful opportunity to aid community members and their families struggling with severe illnesses.  The event has been described by other restaurant owners as “Good PR at no more cost than a tax write-off” and a “Great event for a great cause!  It increases business so it’s win-win for everyone.”  Your participation will make 2014 the best year yet.  Please read the brochure for more details on Moveable Feast and the event itself.  Visit www.diningoutforlife.com/baltimore to sign-up your restaurant or complete the enclosed brochure.  If you have any questions, please contact Mellisa Colimore, Events Manager, at 410.327.3420 x11 or mcolimore@mfeast.org.

We hope you will join us in our mission to FEED people, FIGHT disease and FOSTER hope.
