Thinkin' 'Bout Food

Food for Thought is a cleverly named gala to benefit Big Thought, a Dallas nonprofit serving some 300,000 students and teachers with creative learning programs inside and outside the classroom. Thriving Minds summer camps, for example, offer artistic and cultural enrichment at no cost to children. They're also--as I suspect 99 percent of campers' parents (including myself) view them--free day care. But no matter the parental motivation for sending kids, Big Thought programs are a terrific community resource deserving of support. To that end, the Dallas Association of Young Lawyers has gathered donations for a silent auction and assembled a cast of celebrity chefs (including Food Network near-star Lisa Garza, Abraham Salum and Sam Dickey of the late, great Zymology) to cook. Food for Thought is 7 p.m. Friday at the Tower Club, 1601 Elm St., No. 4800. Cost is $75. Visit

KEEP THE DALLAS OBSERVER FREE... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
