Dining Out For Life – April 28

Northern Nevada HOPES once again hosts Dining Out For Life (DOFL) on April 28 in Reno, Sparks and Carson City. The event is the biggest annual fundraiser for the HOPES.

A full list of participating restaurants is below, with the percentage they are donating and what meals they are donating from. You can also go to to learn more.

DOFL is an international fundraiser that raises money to help people living with HIV. More than 30 local restaurants in Reno, Sparks and Carson City will participate on April 28 and will donate part of their proceeds for that day to HOPES. Though DOFL is an international fundraiser, all money raised in Northern Nevada will stay in the local area.

Last year, DOFL raised more than $50,000 for HIV programs and services at HOPES. Funds raised went to HIV treatment, support services, housing assistance, and HIV testing and outreach.

HOPES would like to thank our local sponsors for supporting DOFL:

  • A&H Insurance
  • Bank Of America
  • Merrill Lynch
  • Grand Canyon University
  • Renown Health
  • Tahoe Blue Vodka
  • Morrey Distributing Company
