Dining Out For Life

September 30

DOFL 2021 2


Dining Out For Life usually comes to Portland every April. Due to COVID restrictions, we are planning to hold our event on Sept. 30.

Both OHSU’s Partnership Project and EMO’s HIV Day Center have continued to provide services during COVID. In fact, our services have become even more critical. We also know that our restaurants have struggled this year. We ask our Portland metro area community to support both our restaurants and our programs by dining out or ordering take out from participating restaurants on Thursday, Sept. 30! View participating restaurants.

Another fun part of Dining Out For Life Portland is the chance to receive ONE of these generously donated items (we do ask for a $5 minimum donation):

    • McMenamins: one-night stay at Crystal Hotel plus $100 gift card.
    • Little T American Baker: $25 gift card.
    • Redwood Restaurant: $100 gift card.
    • Doug Fir: Two tickets to a show plus $50 gift card.
    • Pip’s Original Doughnuts and Chai: $35 gift card.
    • Bar Carlo: $100 gift card.
    • Preferred seating for four at a Rose City Wind Symphony performance during 2021-22 or 2022-21 concert season (two winners will be drawn).

Ways to participate:

    • Complete a donation envelope at participating restaurants on Sept. 30 and leave with the server or ambassador.
    • Visit the QR code located on “I Dined out” sticker that you will get when you order in or take out on Sept. 30 from a participating restaurant.
    • Or you may GIVE NOW (or fill out form below).
