3. No Kid Hungry

Palm Beach island probably doesn't have an issue with hunger - it's one of the wealthiest zip codes in South Florida - but the county's best chef Clay Conley is taking advantage of the overflow of wealth with a fundraising event for No Kid Hungry on Sunday at 6 p.m. The $200 dinner brings together other highly respected chefs Zach Bell, Jamie DeRosa, Victor LaPlaca, Jennifer Reed, and Nicholas Stefanelli at his critically acclaimed Buccan.

Buccan is located at 350 S. County Road in Palm Beach. Call 561-833-3450, or visit buccanpalmbeach.com.

The time to pull out that naughty nurse, sexy firewoman, or whatever other skantily clad option is here, Whisky Blue at the W Hotel is hosting its Haunted Hotel party on Saturday at 9 p.m. The party features a costume contest with prizes ranging from $100 bar tabs to free hotel rooms and more.
