For one day a year, we can throw another element of nice feelings in the mix when the annual Dining Out for Life fundraiser rolls around on April 25. The international event brings in money to support the fight against HIV and AIDS with local restaurants donating proceeds to the Southwest Center for HIV/AIDS.
