Dining for Friends™ was started in 1990 by a group of concerned Guilford County residents just as the full impact of the AIDS epidemic was being felt in the area. Since that time, Dining for Friends has been duplicated by numerous organizations and nonprofits around the country, evolving into one of the most effective fundraising tools available in the fight against HIV/AIDS. In Guilford County alone, the event has raised more than 2 million dollars since its inception.
Each year in the Piedmont, area residents come together for Triad Health Project’s Annual Dining for Friends fundraising event, with hosts from around the Triad welcoming their friends for a party or other event in exchange for a donation to Triad Health Project. Over the years, Dining for Friends has become synonymous with community, friends, family, and celebration. One of the special things about Dining for Friends is the diversity of people who choose to take part. It is exciting to see folks who otherwise might not cross paths come together on this special night in support of a common cause.
