The 19th annual Dining Out for Life to benefit Open Hand is set for Wednesday, April 27. More than 100 metro Atlanta restaurants will donate 20 percent or more from diners’ total checks to support the community nutrition programs of Open Hand.

Last year, participants raised nearly $150,000 for the organization, which provides nutritious meals to homebound seniors and those struggling with chronic, critical or terminal illness.

Some of this year’s participating restaurants include MetroFresh, Murphy’s, Agave, ecco, Livingston, 4th & Swift, The Albert, The Colonnade, DBA Barbecue, Las Margaritas, Miller Union, Universal Joint, Horseradish Grille, Eclipse di Luna, Fritti, 10 Degrees South and West Egg Café.
