On Wednesday, April 22, the Dine Out for Safety event will allow Tucson diners the opportunity to have a great local meal and contribute to a nonprofit that provides education and support for victims of sexual abuse.
Now in its 19th year, the event features about 20 different local joints that will be donating a portion of their sales to the Southern Arizona Center Against Sexual Assault. SACASA provides a safe space for survivors of sexual assault to get resources to cope and learn past

The Dine Out for Safety event will keep all proceeds in the event in the local community to help victims recover and gain strength.
All you have to do is dine out on Wednesday at one of the following places:
