Eat for the Cure

Ever notice how most fundraisers require you to go out and exercise? Sure, I want to help the needy and the sick, but run a marathon? No thanks! I'd spill grande soy latte on my tracksuit. Do you know how hard it is to clean light blue velour?

There is an alternative. The people at Food & Friends, a charity that started in Washington, D.C. are organizing Dine Out For Life in cities across the country. Here's how it works -

You go to dinner.

That's it. If you eat at one of the participating restaurants on the right day, the restaurant will donate 25-100% of your check to Food & Friends who will use it to help fight HIV/AIDS, cancer and other life-challenging illnesses, and support the victims of these diseases.

In Asheville, North Carolina 27 restaurants helped raise $25,566 to support the Western North Carolina AIDS Project. 105 restaurants in Chicago participated last year, ranging from R.J. Grunt's to the Signature Room on the 95th Floor of the John Hancock building.

The Dine Out For Life days scheduled so far this year are:

March 11th - Dallas, Vancouver, Washington, D.C.
March 13th - Indianapolis, Lebanon, Milwaukee,
March 23rd - Nashville
April 22nd - Minneapolis, South Bend,
April 29th - Atlanta, Baltimore, Chicago, East Bay Area, Hampton Roads, Honolulu, Hudson Valley, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, San Francisco, Seattle, Tacoma

Which leads me to ask - hey New York, hey Houston, where the hell are you?

On the appropriate day, at one of the participating restaurants, go out, get blitzed, and stuff youself to the gills. You'll feel great in the morning, even if your stomach's complaining.

There's an "Eat for the Cure" cookbook available at Lulu.com (they do independent publishing). The proceeds from the sale of the cookbook all go to support the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure foundation to support research for a cure for breast cancer.

The truth however is that the exhibition was not very flattering
to Rodin_s wonderful talent_they were more quickie drawings like the Rodin seen here.
