On Thursday, April 29th, 2010, an estimated 250,000 people will dine out to fight AIDS in over fifty cities across the U.S. and Canada. Nearly 3,000 restaurants participate in Dining Out For LifeŽ hosted by Subaru by donating a generous percentage of proceeds from the day's meals to a local AIDS service organization. Money raised in each city stays in that city.
