FUNDRAISER FEEDS TERMINALLY-ILL PATIENTS
Three hundred Denver and Boulder-area restaurants will participate in the “Dining Out for Life” fundraiser Thursday, April 25. Participating restaurants will donate 25 percent of the day’s food sales to Project Angel Heart, a food delivery service for Coloradans suffering from disease.
Each week, Project Angel Heart delivers free meals to over 800 Colorado residents suffering from life-threatening diseases like HIV. Started in 1991 with a single pan of donated lasagna, the organization delivered over 445,581 free meals to 1,950 people in 2012. More than 8,800 volunteers donated their time last year to help prepare and deliver the meals.
