On Saturday April 14th from 4:30pm-6pm, join ~MISSION CHINESE FOOD~ as they continue their charitable work with a benefit dinner for San Francisco’s Asian Women’s Shelter, a nonprofit providing culturally-sensitive services and programs for survivors of domestic abuse. While you’re enjoying eight inventive, family-style courses with a glass of wine, all the proceeds of your $50 ticket will be going to the nonprofit. With only 40 seats, you’ll wanna get your tix online now.

You’ll have another opportunity to support a women’s nonprofit on Wednesday April 18th when Parties That Cook hosts their third annual ~COOKING UP SUCCESS~ fundraiser for Women’s Initiative for Self Employment. This upbeat event includes an interactive cooking demo, then guests get hands-on themselves, all while sipping on wine from Banshee Wines. The night’s menu includes artichoke crostini, panko-crusted shrimp with tamarind sauce, and Mexican chocolate fudge brownies. It’s also a chance to meet Women’s Initiative graduates and shop a marketplace featuring goods from the grads. The Women’s Initiative provides small business training to low-income women so they can start businesses and become economically self-sufficient. Tickets are $95 ($85 of the ticket is tax-deductible). 5:45pm-9pm. The Ferry Building at Embarcadero.
