Dine/drink out, do good

Salsarita's at Cotswold is donating 15 percent of dinner checks for everyone who mentions "The American Cancer Society" at checkout 4-9 p.m. Feb. 24.

FATZ at Carowinds hosts a pancake breakfast 7:30-10:30 a.m. Feb. 26 for $7, with proceeds to the American Cancer Society as well, and there'll be a raffle including jewelry, NASCAR memorabilia and more that morning.

Beginning March 21, The Capital Grille chain offers its next annual Artist Series Wine Event, in which a limited edition wine is produced and labeled with artwork specifically chosen for the series, with $25 from the sale of each $75 bottle going to Share Our Strength, a national group aiming to end childhood hunger in America. The wine is a Cabernet Sauvignon from Thomas Peffer of Atalon Vineyards in Napa Valley, made with the help of the Grille’s George Miliotes, one of 170 master sommeliers in the world. Fewer than 1,000 cases of this wine, with a painting by Florida-based artist Patricia Timbrook on the label, will be produced.
