Gayle Watts’ Involvement in Dining Out For Life®

I had the opportunity to converse with Gayle Watts, the CEO of Children’s Aid Society of Alabama, to delve into her engagement with Dining Out For Life® and the reasons behind her consistent participation over the past four years.

Watts revealed that her friend Kathie Hiers introduced her to this event a few years back, and since then, her Thursday Night Supper Club has been actively supporting it.

“It’s truly enjoyable because not only do we indulge in delicious food, but we also contribute to those in need. It’s a win-win situation for all.

Dining Out for Life has become an annual tradition for our group, and we strive to explore a different restaurant each year.

I urge other groups and individuals who have not yet taken part in the event to join us.

Ultimately, it’s a fantastic way to tantalize our taste buds, connect with old and new acquaintances, and give back to our community!”

Gayle Watts, CEO, Children’s Aid Society of Alabama

More Insights on AIDS Alabama

AIDS Alabama provides essential support to individuals living with HIV/AIDS by addressing their critical needs through a diverse range of services, including:

HIV/AIDS Statistics in the Southern U.S.

As per reports, despite the Southern U.S. constituting roughly 38% of the U.S. population, the region accounted for over half (52%) of all new HIV diagnoses in 2021.

Even with the numerous medical advancements that have transformed HIV into a manageable chronic condition, Alabama holds the highest rate of new HIV diagnoses nationwide. This underscores the significance of AIDS Alabama’s prevention, transportation, mental health, and housing services.

“Science has equipped us with the means to put an end to the HIV epidemic, but these remarkable advancements are futile if we fail to reach those in need.

These restaurants are instrumental in facilitating our mission! Join us at a partnering restaurant or opt for takeout to support AIDS Alabama’s life-saving, life-affirming programs and services.”

Gina Mallisham, Director of Development, AIDS Alabama
