DON’T MISS OUT! Grab a friend and book a table. A Taste for Life is happening on April 25

Are you looking for an excuse to go out for dinner? Join thousands of other diners next Wednesday who will be filling up dozens of Ottawa restaurants and doing good at the same time.

A Taste for Life, a fundraising initiative, invites us to select a restaurant from a list of more than 40 participants and simply dine out on April 25th. The restaurants then donate 25% of sales (food and alcohol, before tax) from that evening to Bruce House and The Snowy Owl AIDS Foundation. The funds are used to support and assist people living with and affected by HIV/AIDS. In 2011, the proceeds were more than $90,000.

Now in its 14th year, the event has been so successful in Ottawa that the idea has been shared with 24 other communities across Ontario and Alberta in support of AIDS services. That’s makes it a Made-in-Ottawa idea that we can be proud of.

Apparently reservations are highly recommended as tables fill up fast!
