Last week, we told you where you could eat well and do good on a budget. This week, it's time to stop being so stingy.

The Event: The Annika Experience: Dinner & Golf Outing with Annika Sorenstam The Cause: ANNIKA Foundation The Place: Park Cities Club; Dallas National Golf Club

If your pinky finger is permanently fixed in the air and you care about children's health, consider the Dinner & Golf Outing on Apr. 3-4, hosted by Coquerel Family Wine Estates. Triple-threat Annika Sorenstam of golf, wine-making, and philanthropy fame, will be there.

The first day features a meal at Park Cities Club, prepared by John Tesar and Kerry Simon, paired with Sorenstam's wines. Tickets are $500.

The second day's highlight is a golf outing, with a golf clinic followed by rounds of golf. The outing is $2,500.

Dinner is limited to 125; golf is limited to 24. Contact clayandbrenda@coquerelwines.com> clayandbrenda@coquerelwines.com to RSVP.

Editor's note: This event has been rescheduled for October 16-17 because of the early arrival of her new baby boy, Will.

The Event: A.W.A.R.E. 2011 Luncheon: A Dallas Love Story - A Tribute to Juanita and Henry S. Miller, Jr. The Cause: Alzheimer's Association-Greater Dallas Chapter The Place: Hilton Anatole's Chantilly Ballroom

The Millers are longtime art patrons whose contributions have helped support cultural development in Dallas. Thursday's luncheon will celebrate their generosity, philanthropy and love for each other. How precious.

Tickets start at $150. Money raised by the function will benefit the Alzheimer's Association.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
