Pick 5: Eat for a Cause

It is always nice to treat yourself to a night out for dinner, but it is even better when  you can support a good cause in the process. We picked out five dining events that benefit local and national charities. Some are finishing up this month, so be sure to eat and drink to your heart’s content and support a special cause.
