A reminder that two restaurants at Town & Country Village will offer plenty of good eats as part of the annual "A Cause to Celebrate" fundraiser, 6 to 8:30 p.m. tonight.
Buonarroti Italian restaurant will serve a buffet-style tasting menu of chicken, meatballs, fried ravioli, gnocchi, butternut squash risotto, pizza from a wood-fired oven, bruschetta, and baked Brie in phyllo dough.
The nearby Terrace restaurant plans a spread of desserts, including custard layered pound cake, rocky road torte, chocolate cups with peanut butter mousse, and white chocolate with peanuts and puffed rice.
Wine, beer, music and a live auction will be part of the revelry. Bonus: Each guest will receive a $20 gift certificate redeemable at participating Town & Country stores. Tickets are $40 in advance, $45 at the door, at (916) 482-2370, Ext. 333, and www.crhkids.org.
"Celebrate" will benefit the Children's Receiving Home of Sacramento, a safety net for abused and neglected children. Town & Country Village is at Marconi and Fulton avenues, Sacramento.
