Desert AIDS Project would like to extend a special thanks to seven restaurants that each contributed $5,000 or more through Dining Out for Life – that one day each year when benefiting client services at Desert AIDS Project is as simple as eating a meal at your favorite participating restaurant.

“There is no doubt that some of our wonderfully community-spirited restaurants, bars, and clubs went above and beyond the call-of-duty,” said David Brinkman, CEO of Desert AIDS Project. “Trio Restaurant brought us nearly $21,000 by contributing 60% of sales from their lunch and dinner sales on Thursday, April 26. Spencer’s was close on their heels with nearly $16,000 through a 75% share of breakfast, lunch, AND dinner!”

The third through seventh top-producing restaurants for the 2012 Dining Out for Life event, in order, were: LULU California Bistro, Wang’s in the Desert, Acqua Pazza, Amici Italian Restaurante, and Zin American Bistro.

“This year, we had 45 restaurants, bars, and clubs that participated in Dining Out for Life,” Brinkman continued. “That’s more than we’ve ever had before. We hope that D.A.P. supporters will continue to reward their generosity by continuing to patronize them throughout the year.”
