What Do Ambassadors Do?

Ambassadors volunteer their time to host a participating restaurant in San Francisco on April 25, 2017. They invite friends and family to dine at their designated restaurant and during the evening they greet guests, share information about the cause, and promote sweepstakes ticket sales.

  • Attend the Ambassador Kickoff Training on April 11 from 6:00pm to 7:30pm.
  • Invite your friends and family to dine at your assigned restaurant.
  • Greet and welcome diners. Remind them that 25% of their bill will be donated to HIV prevention and care programs in San Francisco.

Why I Am an Ambassador

"When you’re an ambassador, basically you’re asking your friends to come and eat with you. You get to host a fun night out in San Francisco. I always ask my friends to dine with me, and ask that they invite their friends, too. It turns into a chance to meet a lot of new people, all for a good cause." Read More »
