Actress Pam Grier and the Food Network's "Chopped" host, Ted Allen, will be in town tomorrow to tape a public-service announcement to promote the 20th anniversary of Dining Out for Life. The national AIDS fundraising event started in Philadelphia as a benefit for Action AIDS. It's held here this year on April 29.

Grier - famous for '70s films like "Foxy Brown" and "Coffy" and later for TV's "The L Word" and megafan Quentin Tarantino's "Jackie Brown" - and Allen, formerly of  "Queer Eye"," will be joined by chef/restaurateur Jose Garces and will tape their spot at his Chifa (707 Walnut).

Laura Burkhardt, publisher of Where Magazine: Philadelphia - a Dining Out for Life sponsor and a big Action AIDS supporter - has partnered with local jeweler John Wind, who will issue a limited series to benefit Action AIDS and the Mazzoni Center. Mazzoni, on South 12th Street, is the health center for Philadelphia's lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community.

The jewelry, some of which Grier will wear in an advertisement, will be sold beginning next week at Joan Shepp (1616 Walnut), Scarlett Alley (241 Race) and JimmyStyle (1820 E. Passyunk) or online. For more info visit Dining Out For Life or Action AIDS.
