A diverse range of restaurants sign on to fight AIDS through Oahu Dines.
Honolulu, HI – January 28, 2007 – A diverse range of restaurants have already signed on for Oahu Dines, from the Ben and Jerry's ice cream shop at Ward, to upscale restaurants such as Chai's Island Bistro, and local favorites such as Big City Diner and Boots and Kimos. Oahu Dines is an annual event where restaurants on Oahu join together to support Life Foundation, Hawaii's oldest and largest AIDS organization. Participating restaurants donate a portion of their proceeds earned on Wednesday, February 28, 2007 to support Life Foundation's work and promote HIV/AIDS awareness in Hawaii.
"We are pleased to see the event appeals to such a broad range of restaurants," says Paul Groesbeck, Executive Director of Life Foundation. "This means the Oahu Dines' message of AIDS awareness will reach a larger segment of the community."
Last year, 23 restaurants participated, raising over $15,000 for Life Foundation. As of January 28, 13 restaurants have signed on for Oahu Dines 2007. To see the most up to date listing of participating restaurants, visit www.oahudines.org.
Communications Pacific, Oceanic Time Warner Cable, Aloha Diners Club, Cox Radio, and Hawaii Diner.com have signed on as promotional sponsors for Oahu Dines 2007.
Life Foundation is encouraging everyone to eat out at a participating restaurant on Wednesday, February 28 and to patronize these restaurants throughout the year to thank them for their support in the fight against AIDS.
Restaurants interested in signing on and patrons interested in dining out to support Life Foundation on February 28 can get more information by visiting www.oahudines.org or by calling 521-2437.
