(KMOV)-- Anyone looking for an excuse to eat out now has a good reason to do it.
Tomorrow, 130 local restaurants will participate in the “Dining out for Life” fundraiser. The event takes place in 60 cities, and 25 to 100 percent of proceeds benefit the fight against AIDS.
Hall of Famer Ozzie Smith will serve as the local chairman for the tenth year in a row. Smith says St. Louis has raised the second highest amount of money nationally.
This year’s event is expected to bring the total of St. Louis donations to $4 million.
While Smith stopped by News 4, John Knicely had to ask him a little about this year's Cardinals. The former shortstop said despite a shaky start and issues with relief pitching, he expects the Cards will "fall in line."
He, like many St. Louisans, has his fingers crossed hoping Pujols will sign again with St. Louis.
