On Thursday, April 27, 2017 Fifteen eateries in the El Paso area will donate 25% of their diners’ food bill to Border AIDS Partnership.
Dining Out For Life is an annual fundraising event involving the generous participation of volunteers, corporate sponsors and Restaurants.
More than 3,000 restaurants donate a portion of their proceeds from this one special day of dining to the licensed AIDS service agency in their city. More than $4 million dollars a year is raised to support the missions of 60 outstanding HIV/AIDS service organizations throughout North America.
With the exception of the annual licensing fee, all money raised in these cities stays locally.
Border AIDS Partnership (BAP) is a bi-national and tri-state funding collaborative that provides funding for HIV/AIDS education and prevention activities in El Paso, Texas, Southern New Mexico, and Ciudad Juárez, Mexico.
Border AIDS Partnership started as a project of El Paso Community Foundation in 1994 and in January 2007, BAP received its 501c3 letter of determination and continues the critical work of funding community based organizations in our region, as an independent nonprofit.
Since 1996, BAP has distributed, in the form of effective grants, more than $1.8 million to support innovative HIV prevention programs.
