Atlanta Restaurant Scene

Dine out for a good cause this Wednesday

For the last 25 years, the dining fundraising event Dining Out for Life has made it easy for people across the country to give back to their local communities.

This year's Dining Out for Life will take place April 26. Atlantans who eat out at one of more than 100 participating restaurants, will see 25 percent of their check donated to Open Hand Atlanta. The organization offers healthy meals and nutrition education for individuals struggling with a chronic, critical or terminal illness, as well as for seniors in the Atlanta community.
