Denver native and Project Runway All-Star winner Mondo Guerra is Dining Out for Life in Denver on April 25th. "Dining out for Life is our opportunity to celebrate friends, food and being truly fabulous in helping others," says the designer, who revealed his HIV-positive status on Runway and has since become a forerunner in HIV/AIDS advocacy.
Dining Out for Life is an event hosted in 60 markets. Since 1990, the event has offered a meaningful way to support a worthy cause. On a single day, more than 250,000 people across North America are expected to help raise nearly $4 Million in the struggle against HIV/AIDS. This is Project Angel Heart's 19h year hosting the event, the largest of its kind, with more participating restaurants and more funds raised than any other market. In 2012, Denver area diners committed their support by helping Project Angel Heart raise $330,000, which assisted in preparing and delivering at 445,000 nutritious meals, at no cost, to 1,950 people in the Metro area and Colorado Springs.
