Sponsor an Event

Open Hand presents two to three high-profile events each year to raise funds and awareness to support our work in the community. Through event sponsorship, large and small corporations raise their profile in the community by reaching thousands of metropolitan Atlantans. A sponsor’s identity is included on all pre-event promotions, Open Hand’s website, on-site signage, and post-event acknowledgements. Other benefits include VIP tickets, email marketing opportunities and civic pride. Sponsor contributions are essential sources of donations that support Open Hand’s Comprehensive Nutrition Care™ programs.

Available Sponsorship Opportunities

The 21st annual Dining Out for Life will be one of the largest citywide fund-raisers in Atlanta this year. On Wednesday, April 24, 2013, thousands of people will choose from a list of more than 100 participating restaurants and dine out for breakfast, lunch and/or dinner knowing that a minimum of 25% of their bill will help Open Hand continue to provide more than 5,000 nutritious meals each day and empower our neighbors battling chronic disease and disability live healthier, more independent lives.

Dining Out for Life is an international dining fundraising event that is held in 60 cities throughout the United States and Canada. Last year, 86 metro Atlanta restaurants joined together for Dining Out for Life 2012 and raised more than $150,000 to further the mission of Open Hand.
