Make One Meal Matter

Join us Wednesday, November 14 for the 22nd annual Dining Out For Life®, presented by Brown-Forman. You can pick from breakfast, lunch, dinner, and dessert options! Every person who dines at one of our participating restaurants on November 14 is helping provide housing, substance abuse recovery services, mental health counseling, and much more to individuals in our community affected by HIV/AIDS. During the event, Kentuckiana restaurants will donate a portion of your check to House of Ruth. By simply enjoying a meal, you are making our community stronger.

For a full list of participating restaurants please click here. We will update as restaurants join. Also, please RSVP for our Facebook event for up-to-date information and share with your friends!

Dining Out is Easy, and so is Volunteering!

The success of Dining Out for Life depends on our amazing volunteers, so we want to make it as easy as possible. We have two great ways to volunteers.

  1. Dining Out For Life Ambassador
    Do you remember the friendly face who greeted you while you dined, and gave you quick information about Dining Out For Life and House of Ruth along with a donation envelope last year? Well, that could be you! Ambassadors are assigned to a specific restaurant, during busy meal times, to greet guest, offer information, and collect donation envelopes. Sounds important right? That is because it is. Last year, Ambassadors collected over $10,000 by simply offering guest a donation envelope.
  2. Dining Out for Life Host
    If you love to entertain, then you were born to be a host. A host simply invites their friends, family, clients, co-workers, neighbors, and anyone else to join them for a meal at a specific restaurant. You pick the time and place and get your group, big or small, together. You get to enjoy a meal with your friends, they get to feel great about supporting House of Ruth, and the restaurant gets more seats filled, which equals a bigger donation. It’s a win, win, win! We try to have at least one Host in every restaurant to help the restaurant have the best night possible. Host can be an individual or groups.

If you are interested in either opportunity, contact Katrina Hutchins at khutchins@houseofruth.net or 502.587.5080 for more information.
