Get Involved

Dining with Friends (DWF), is our signature community fundraising event and way for supporters (locally and nationally) to make a difference for those living with HIV/AIDS.

If you love hosting parties, then you will love this fundraiser. During our Dining with Friends (DWF) season from March to the end of June, community individuals and organizations will plan and host parties to benefit the programs and services of AIDS Care Service. Hosts invite their guests to attend their special party and make a financial contribution to AIDS Care Service. Financial contributions support hundreds of individuals struggling with HIV/AIDS. AIDS Care Service will provide printed materials such as custom invitations, posters, along with a Dining with Friends mentor to make their party a hit!

After the success of each party, AIDS Care Service invites all party hosts and guest to a Dining with Friend Finale event, hosted by yours truly!
