The History of Dining for Friends

This unique event 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, thousands of area residents come together for Triad Health Project's Annual Dining for Friends fundraising event. Hundreds of hosts from around the Triad will welcome their friends for a party / 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.

This year, on May 17, 2014, hosts and their guests will gather for a 8:00 pm Dessert Finale at The Terrace at the Greensboro Coliseum, indulging in delectable delights donated by local restaurants and caterers, and entertainment by the popular Sleeping Booty Band. Individuals who are not planning to host or attend a party / event are welcome to join the Dessert Finale by making a minumum donation of $25 at the Coliseum.

Dining for Friends is presented through the generosity of Presenting Sponsors Replacements, Ltd. and the Greensboro Coliseum Complex.
