Dining Out For Life (Nashville) returning co-chair Shamille Wharton is excited to welcome Stacey Wilson and Bradford Hollingsworth as co-chairs. The three, in addition to honorary co-chairs Chris Chamberlain and Jay Matheney are happy to welcome new and returning restaurants to this year's Dining Out For Life Nashville event.

“Dining Out For Life is such a simple and fun way to support Nashville CARES," said Wharton. "Everyone loves going out to eat and enjoying good food with friends, why not do it for a great cause? We are grateful for the ongoing generosity of Nashville’s restaurant community, who open their doors and extend such gracious hospitality to Nashville CARES.”

More than 70 restaurants will participate this year, donating 30% - 100% of their sales for breakfast, lunch and/or dinner to Nashville CARES. All you have to do is gather your friends, family and coworkers and head to a local participating restaurant.

“Dining Out For Life is one of Nashville CARES’ most successful events because of the generosity of Nashville’s restaurants, and because it is so easy to participate. Just dine out at any of the participating restaurants around town and a portion of your check will be donated to Nashville CARES,” said Jay Matheney.

Nashville CARES holds the oldest Dining Out For Life event in Tennessee. For one day of the year, we encourage Nashville to Dine Out and Fight HIV/AIDS! All proceeds support the Nashville CARES mission to end the HIV/AIDS epidemic in Middle Tennessee. To find a participating restaurant, visit www.diningoutforlife.com/nashville.

“I am thrilled to be a part of such a community-wide event. This is the perfect opportunity to share Nashville CARES mission and to honor the important work they do in Middle Tennessee,” said Bradford Hollingsworth.

Embassy Dental and NPS Pharmacy are Co-Presenting sponsors of the event locally. 2015 marks Subaru’s ninth year as International Host of the annual eating extravaganza involving food, family, friends and fundraising. Nashville CARES is pleased to welcome Downtown Subaru as a local partner and sponsor for this year’s event once again.
