Dining Out for Life 2020

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have postponed our annual Dining Out For Life fundraiser. We hope to be able to reschedule in the fall.

Dining Out For Life Portland is an important source of income for Ecumenical Ministries of Oregon’s (EMO) HIV Services and OHSU’s Partnership Project—both of which serve low-income individuals living with HIV in the Portland metro area. We hope that you will be able to support these services with a direct donation during this time of crisis. Proceeds will go directly to EMO’s HIV Day Center and OHSU’s Partnership Project.

Thank you to our Dining Out For Life Sponsors: National sponsors Suburu and Ponaman Healthcare Consulting; local sponsors Grapevine Outdoor, Lamar Advertising, N2 Publishing, The Oregonian, Portland Monthly, and Schoenfeld & Schoenfeld P.C.

A special thank you to our Honorary Chair Rose City Pride Bands.

On Dining Out For Life day (traditionally held in April), when you dine at a participating restaurant, between 20% and 35% of your bill goes directly to EMO’s HIV Day Center and Partnership Project. Both organizations work closely together to provide vital programs and services to individuals living with HIV in the Portland Metro area.

Following public health guidelines, we are postponing the National Transgender HIV Testing Day plans, scheduled for April. We hope to schedule a new date in October.

The event will continue to be a celebration with performances, wellness activities, resources and HIV testing.

OHSU Partnership Project participates in CAP's AIDS Walk Portland, which raises funds to help support crucial programs and services.

As a sister agency to CAP, Partnership retains 60% of the funds its team raises. 

We are getting involved in our community's most powerful and enduring response to the HIV/AIDS pandemic and our hope is that you will too.
