Dining Out For Life® is an annual fundraising event involving the generous participation of volunteers, corporate sponsors and restaurants. 

It’s easy – dine at one of these fine restaurants and a portion of the proceeds will benefit the Michigan AIDS Coalition:

In 1991, Dining Out For Life was created by an ActionAIDS volunteer in Philadelphia. Dining Out For Life is now produced in 60 cities – including Detroit – throughout the United States and Canada.

More than 3,000 restaurants donate a portion of their proceeds from this one special day of dining to the licensed AIDS service agency in their city. More than $3 million dollars a year is raised to support the missions of 60 outstanding HIV/AIDS service organizations throughout North America. 

The Dining Out For Life International Association is a 501(c)(4) nonprofit organization.

Special thank you to our media partners:  Between The Lines/Pridesource Media , Hour Media and Flame Magazine


Our mission statement is to “prevent HIV/AIDS in Michigan by promoting healthy lifestyles, providing and investing in evidence-based, innovative programs and through advocacy and education.” The two agencies which merged to form MAC have more than 30 years experience in HIV/AIDS advocacy, education and outreach. We will continue on this path until it is no longer necessary.
MAC is a Community Partnership of AIDS United
