Open Hand Atlanta and presenting sponsor Subaru are honored to announce that over $127,000 was raised during the 29th annual Dining Out For Life benefit event, which was held on April 27, 2022. The annual event saw the city dine out at well-known restaurants from around the Metro Atlanta area to benefit the non-profit. One of the largest city-wide fundraisers of the year proceeds from Dining Out For Life help Open Hand Atlanta and its thousands of volunteers provide nearly 5,000 nutritious meals daily and support their neighbors battling chronic disease and disability to live healthier, more independent lives.
Dining Out For Life is an international event that occurs annually throughout 60 cities worldwide. While dining out for breakfast, lunch, and dinner in Atlanta, guests were able to choose from a list of more than 80 participating restaurants. In return, the restaurants donated a portion of each customer’s total bill to Open Hand Atlanta. This year’s restaurants included Atlanta favorites, such as Guac y Margy’s, The General Muir, Local Three, Max Lager’s, and Agave.
On September 29, Open Hand Atlanta’s annual benefit Party in the Kitchen will return for its 19th year. Hosted in The Stave Room at American Spirit Works, this formal fundraising event will engage guests with an elegant night of live and silent auctions, music, and delicious bites and cocktails from some of Atlanta’s best restaurants, with all proceeds benefiting the organization.
