The second annual "Dining Our for Life at the Beach" is being held on Sunday, June 10, at the Delaware beaches. This new version of an 11-year nationally-held event, is sponsored by AIDS Delaware. "Dining Our for Life" is a fun and easy way for the community to get involved and help support us," says Maureen Leary, director for Kent and Sussex County Services. According to the Rehoboth Beach-Dewey beach Chamber of Commerce, there are more than 100 eateries in one square-mile. The high number of restaurants at the Delaware beaches inspired AIDS Delaware to create this event. Proceeds from the event will benefit AIDS Delaware and Positive Light, a Sussex County volunteer social services organization, for those infected with HIV-AIDS. Fifteen of the shoreline's best gourmet family and fun restaurants will participate, donating 33 percent of all food receipts generated on June 10. Every diner will have a chance to win one of three works of art, a lighthouse scene, a beach scene, and a seascape, painted by local artist Nicole Gonzon. For more information about "Dining Our for Life," contact Leary at 236-9885.
