A variety of restaurants from Columbia County in the south to the Canadian border in the north are planning to participate in the 8th annual Dining Out for Life.

Participating restaurants inb what essentially is the 518 area code will donate 25% of their sales of cocktails, breakfast, lunch and dinner on Thursday, April 28, to the AIDS Council of Northeastern New York’s Client Services Emergency Fund that day.

Last year’s event raised an estimated $43,000 for the AIDS Council as more than 16,000 people participated. The top five restaurants in terms of total contributions:

1. New World Bistro, Albany, $2,419 (the all-time best)
