Become A Virtual Ambassador!

Dining Out For Life looks a little different this year… Dine IN For Life on Thursday, April 29!

Like last year, WNCAP is not asking any of our restaurant partners for donations in 2021. Instead, in collaboration with Asheville Independent Restaurants (AIR), Dine IN For Life is an opportunity to promote and celebrate all the restaurants that have given back to our local community over the decades.

Because of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, Dine IN For Life will not feature in-person Ambassadors. But you can still help WNCAP and support your favorite Participating Restaurant from the safety and comfort of your own home. How? By becoming a Virtual Ambassador!

The role of the Virtual Ambassador is simple: encourage your friends, family, neighbors, and colleagues to support WNCAP and support your assigned Participating Restaurant. 

See a full list of 2021 Participating Restaurants with our DIFL Google Sheet.

On a smartphone or tablet, use our Participating Restaurants mobile app.

Being a Virtual Ambassador is easy as 1, 2, 3

  1. Use your favorite methods of communication – telephone, email, text message, Facebook – to encourage everyone in your networks to donate to WNCAP and patronize your assigned Participating Restaurant on Thursday, April 29.
  2. Remind everyone that there are many ways to support your restaurant – takeout, dine-in, delivery, and gift cards are all great options!
  3. Encourage your social circle to join the Dine IN For Life Prize Drawing. You can enter by donating to WNCAP online, filling out a Drawing Envelope at any Participating Restaurant, or posting a selfie with your lifesaving takeout on social media and tagging @wncap.

This has been a difficult year for independent restaurants and local nonprofits. By encouraging everyone you know to support both, you are making a meaningful difference in our local community!
