To Do: Virtual Shows, Dinners, Flowers, and Cultural Events

Last year I attempted to do a To Do posts on Tuesdays, and then I got so busy and skipped a few Tuesdays. Let’s try it again, every Tuesday I will post events coming up current, or soon.

Dining Out For Life 2020 will not be happening “in real life” in Philadelphia on April 30, 2020

In response to COVID-19, Action Wellness has made the difficult decision to cancel its annual fundraising event, Dining Out For Life, scheduled to take place on Thursday, April 30, 2020, when more than 150 area restaurants would have donated 33% of their food sales to Action Wellness, AIDS Delaware, and Camden Area Health Education Center, Inc. to help people living with and affected by HIV in the Delaware Valley.

Instead, Action Wellness is encouraging participants to DINE IN to celebrate what would have been the 30th anniversary of this vital fundraising event and to continue to support those living with HIV. Check out Info on how you can help this Thursday HERE!!

We’re All In This Together, including the charities who are hurting as much if not more than many of us. We will probably be on our feet sooner than most of the charities in our area, who make a difference in people lives. We’re familiar with Giving Tuesday which happens shortly after Thanksgiving, this year we’re having a 2nd one.
Giving Tuesday Announces Day of Global Action for Giving and Unity in Response to COVID-19 a few of my favorite ones are below. Feel free to tag me on Social Media and I will add more on Sunday’s post.
