'Dream Week' dining to benefit AIDS Resource
“Dream Week is an exciting event that will tantalize diners with new taste sensations from their tried and true favorites,” said Jack Omer, ARC Ohio special events director, “It’s also the perfect week for diners to try out restaurants they’ve never experienced while helping those infected, affected and at risk of HIV/AIDS in the Miami Valley at the same time.”
Dream Week will kick off with a special “Sip and Sample, Eat and Greet” event on Sunday, May 31, from 4-7pm at the Taj Ma Garaj, 300 Perry Street, Dayton. Tickets are $50 and include unlimited beer, wine and food provided by all of the participating restaurants. In addition, ARC Ohio has produced a never-before-released cookbook featuring the independent restaurants showcased during Dream Week. Cookbooks are $25 and will be available at the Dream Week Kickoff event, as well as at select restaurant locations and at the ARC Ohio offices.
Celebrating its 25th anniversary, AIDS Resource Center Ohio is a nonprofit, community-based organization that provides services to those infected, affected and at risk of HIV/AIDS. Proceeds raised from Dream Week will help ARC Ohio provide comprehensive support services, HIV testing and counseling, prevention education, linkage to care, and advocacy will be provided for more than 15,000 Ohioans this year.
