An annual dining fundraiser takes place in Portland this month to benefit people living with or impacted by HIV.

From Tuesday, June 20 to Thursday, June 22, you can support the Dining Out For Life campaign by visiting a participating restaurant in the metro area — and that business will make a donation to EMO’s HIV Day Center and OHSU’s Partnership Project.

More than 30 local restaurants and cafes have joined the fundraiser, including 17 McMenamins locations, Nico’s Ice Cream, and Albina Press. Applications are still open for eateries interested in joining.

Diners can also make contributions using donation envelopes available at each restaurant, or by scanning a QR code located on-site. Those who donate $5 or more will be entered to win a prize — like a one-night stay at McMenamins Crystal Hotel or dinner for four at Bar Carlo. Donations can also be made online or at an Untapped Trivia event during the week of June 18.
