If there is one day to dine out, for breakfast, lunch, or dinner -- or all three of them it is Thursday, April 30. Over 250 Denver metro and Boulder area restaurants will participate that day in the annual Dine Out for Life event to benefit Project Angel Heart. These venues will donate 25 percent of food sales to support Project Angel Heart's mission of delivering free nutritious meals to better the lives of Coloradans coping with life-threatening illnesses.
"Fruition Restaurant has participated in Project Angel Heart's Dining Out for Life every year since we opened and I am excited that our new restaurant and market, Mercantile Dining & Provision will also join in on this annual event," chef Alex Seidel shared. "Food sustains us as human beings and provides comfort and I am honored to take part in assisting Project Angel Heart's mission to provide nutritious meals to those in our community with life threatening illnesses," he added.
The Denver/Boulder region holds the title as the area with the most participating restaurants and the highest fundraising totals of any city in the state. Lower48, Lena, Brazen and Stoic & Genuine are just a few of the restaurants taking part in this event and a full list of participating venues can be found here.
"As a chef I have supported Project Angel Heart for the past 10 years, through Dining Out For Life," chef Brandon Biederman of Steuben's and Ace Eat Serve said. "Project Angel Heart is one of our organizations of choice because it is local and food-related, so it really speaks to Denver chefs like myself. Dining Out For Life in particular is one of my favorites because it attracts a really passionate, high-energy clientele into the restaurants, and it is one of the only events of the year that truly brings the community together for a citywide fundraiser."
A representative from Project Angel Heart will speak with guests at the participating restaurants about the impact of this specific day for the Denver community throughout the day. It is estimated that over 80,000 guests will participate this Thursday by dining out for breakfast, lunch, or dinner at any of the involved venues.More information about the cause and the event can be found online.
