CAMDEN, N.J., Sept. 24, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- The COVID-19 pandemic has forced dramatic changes to all of our lives and brought devastating challenges to the restaurant community, as well as to the healthcare organizations who support people in need. The annual restaurant-based fundraiser, Dining Out For Life® hosted by Subaru, sends crucially needed funds to HIV/AIDS organizations in cities across North America.
Subaru of America, Inc. continues to support Dining Out For Life, and invites you to join Chopped! host Ted Allen and guests on Instagram Live on Thursday, September 24 8:00-9:00 p.m. EDT, for a spicy, clean-food, cooking demonstration by New York-based, award-winning Chef Ric Orlando, as well as conversation with Designer /HIV Activist Mondo Guerra, and actor/author, Pam Grier.
