Dining with Friends 2016

Dining with Friends is our signature community fundraising event and a way for supporters to make a difference for those living with HIV/AIDS.

If you love hosting parties, then you will love this fundraiser. During Dining with Friends, from February to the end of April, community individuals and organizations will plan and host parties and gatherings with friends, family, and colleagues that benefit the programs of AIDS Care Service. Hosts invite their guests to attend their special party and make a financial contribution to ACS, helping persons struggling to live with HIV. ACS provides printed host materials such as custom invitations and posters along with host guidance to make their party a success.

After the individual parties, guests and their hosts will come together to enjoy an exclusive community-wide celebration, free of charge, that concludes Dining with Friends with complimentary desserts, live music, and dancing until 1 am. This year the event, featuring desserts provided by Dewey’s Bakery, will be held in the Speakeasy at the beautiful Millenium Center in downtown Winston-Salem on Saturday, April 30, from 8:00 pm – 1:00 am.  The Dewey’s Grand Dessert Finale is a time to celebrate your accomplishment as a community and enjoy the finest of desserts from the finest of dessert makers.

We are grateful to welcome returning support from Hanesbrands, Inc. along with MedExpress Pharmacy for this year’s Dining with Friends. In addition, we are thrilled to name Gayle Anderson, the President and CEO of the Winston Salem Chamber of Commerce as our first annual Honorary Chairperson.
