Good Eating: A Top Chef Rematch

Whether it's eating food, drinking wine, watching reality television or sitting on furniture you enjoy best, Dallas has some charitable opportunities for you.

The Event: Bonne Santé The Cause: National Kidney Foundation and North Texas community members

Touted as a "showcase of wining and dining," Bonne Santé will feature a slew of celebrity chefs at stations creating masterful dishes with wine parings on February 17 at the Westin Galleria Dallas. The roster of culinary talent includes (but is certainly not limited to) William Koval, Anthony Bombaci, Dean Fearing, David Smith and Jason Weaver. The event will have "luxurious" live and silent auctions. Individual tickets are $200.
