Volunteers needed to Dine Out for Duchenne!

Do you love to go out to eat? Do you want to help fundraise, but don't have the time? Then this is the event for you!! You can participate whenever you visit a new restaurant without doing extra work! It's fast and easy!! 


Dine Out for Duchenne is a week-long, online event where people can purchase gift certificates donated by restaurants throughout the United States. Supporters can click on an image map of states to find the listings, by city, in any state – for their own dining, as a gift, for when they travel, etc. Each restaurant will have a listing (multiple listings if more than one location) that includes a description of the restaurant, a link to their website, and the amount of the certificate. Press releases will be sent out to national and local media, focusing on the restaurants in local areas. The week before the event will be a preview week where people can look at the available certificates and target their purchases.


Here’s how it will work:

  • PPMD volunteers will go to their favorite, local restaurants to seek gift certificates. [Note: Volunteers will be provided with a packet of information they can use when visiting the restaurants. One of our members has done this for a local fundraiser and tells us that restaurants are very willing to help out, making the volunteers’ jobs easy.]
  • Gift certificates will then be displayed and sold on our Dine Out for Duchenne website during the week of May 13-20, 2012.


We’re aiming for at least 15 certificates of $25 each from each of the 50 states…but of course, more is better! Our first goal, however, is to get at least two volunteers from each state committed to get gift certificates. 


Will you help?

Email Judy Schneider at judygsch@comcast.net today to volunteer and help us make this fundraiser the incredible success we believe it can be! Let’s Dine Out for Duchenne. Together, we will end Duchenne.


Thanks and we look forward to working with you!
