Spend Nov. 2 among old friends and new while raising money for a worthy organization in Charlotte.
As one of the largest HIV nonprofits in the Carolinas, the Regional Aids Interfaith Network's mission is to combat prejudices and strive for understanding within the community. RAIN gives those living with AIDS the ability to live their lives to the fullest.
The charity event Dining With Friends allows hosts to throw their own parties and invite their guests to raise money that will go directly to RAIN. Parties will be held on Saturday, Nov. 2, with the finale shindig at Discovery Place at 9 p.m. The finale is a celebration of all the money raised by the event, and guests are treated to desserts from some of the best restaurants around. Amelie's, barCHOCOLATE and Dandelion Market are just a few of the sponsors. Attendees are welcome to explore the exhibits as they sip on champagne and cocktails. Donations and registration to become a host can be made online at www.diningwithfriendscharlotte.org. Minimum donation of $30 to attend finale. Nov. 2, 9 p.m. Discovery Place, 301 N. Tryon St.
