El Paso’s Border AIDS Partnership (BAP) presents their annual “Dining por Vida” fundraising event. Restaurants are asked to donate a portion of the day’s food sales to BAP. Liquor sales are not part of this donation. A local ambassador will be provided for each locale. In addition to the food sales on that day, people can make additional contributions at the time of their visit. The restaurants participating this year will be: Mesa Street Grill (lunch/dinner), Joe Vinny and Bronson’s Café (lunch), Ardovino’s Desert Crossing (dinner), Rulis’ International Kitchen (dinner), Eloise (dinner), and Piedmont Cafe (dinner). “We are very excited to continue our Dining por Vida event. By eating out on this day, you are also helping our organization provide critical resources for people from El Paso, Cd. Juárez and Las Cruces who are battling HIV/AIDS”, said Chris Cummings, Board Member of BAP. “We want to invite our community to join us at a restaurant that perhaps they’ve never been to before. It is also our way of expressing our appreciation to local establishments who have been so generous with us in the past.” In 1994, the El Paso Community Foundation and the US/Mexico Border Health Association created a local HIV/AIDS partnership to provide assistance to nonprofit organizations in the region working on this critical health problem. With support from AIDS United, the collaboration became the Border AIDS Partnership, a bi-national and tri-state funding collaborative that has been providing funding for HIV/AIDS education and prevention activities in El Paso, Southern New Mexico and Ciudad Juárez. BAP now operates as an independent 501c3 nonprofit. This year, BAP celebrates their 25 the anniversary. Since 1996, the Border AIDS Partnership has distributed more than $2.3 million to support innovative HIV prevention and education programs. Previous grantees include Centro Caritativo Para Atención de Enfermos de Sida, University Medical Center of El Paso’s Teen Advisory Board, Programa Compañeros, support group HIVida, Actúa y Toma El Control, Opportunity Center for the Homeless, and Las Americas Immigrant Advocacy Center, Families & Youth, Inc. Find them on their Facebook and Instagram accounts for additional information.
