MINNEAPOLIS--The Aliveness Project celebrates the 20th Anniversary of Dining Out for Life in Minnesota. This year Dining Out for life is on Thursday, April 24. Join KARE 11's Sven Sundgaard, Rena Sarigianopoulos and Blake McCoy as they dine out, do good and have fun while supporting the Aliveness project as it provides vital services to individuals in Minnesota living with HIV/AIDS.

Last year dining out for life raised over $255,000 in donations with 35,000 dinners. This year the goal is to raise $270,000 and 40,000 dinners. A list of participating restaurants in the Twin Cities, Duluth, Mankato and Rochester is available online.
