Dine out, do good

Fox & Hound at Northlake hosts an event to benefit Steve's Coats for Kids and Crisis Assistance Ministry on Jan. 21: It begins at 6 p.m., and for a $10 admission, you get to sample a buffet of new and signature menu items (such as hummus, chicken tenders, Black Forest sliders and more) and two drinks (ranging from margaritas to wine and beer).

Coats can be donated until the event date at the restaurant, and you can buy tickets to the event at the door. "For the 11th year, Steve’s Coats for Kids is trying to get new and gently used coats into the arms of kids who don’t have a coat during this cold winter season,” said Steve Udelson, who is WSOC TV Channel 9's chief meteorologist. All ticket proceeds will go to Crisis Assistance Ministry, which distributes the coats. 704-509-2853; 9325 Center Lake Drive; www.foxandhound.com.
