Your chance to dine out for a great cause.

How it works!

Families pick the participating restaurant of their choice.

We strongly suggest that they make a reservation.

Participating restaurants contribute minimum of 15% of the gross revenue (not including taxes) to PARN

Each restaurant will have A Taste For Life PARN Volunteer Host to answer questions about the charity

Everyone who dines out as a part of PARN’s 2023 A Taste for Life event on April 19 will be entered into a draw for a $150 gift certificate for the A Taste for Life restaurant(s) of their choice.
