Much like making the transition to a tracksuit-only wardrobe or converting your house into a two-story bubble bath, donating money to charity can immediately make you feel better about yourself. Get a tracksuit-free night out for giving to a good cause with today’s Groupon: for $50, you get two tickets to "The Above Par Classic: A Unique Dining and Auction Event" (a $100 value in advance or a $130 value at the door) at Wyndyke Country Club on Saturday, May 21 at 5:45 p.m. All proceeds benefit the Memphis chapter of the PKD Foundation, a nonprofit organization dedicated to fighting polycystic kidney disease.
Donors wine and dine their way through the "The Above Par Classic" while putting their magnanimous contributions to work in the fight against PKD. Area restaurants such as Bonefish Grill, Rendezvous, and Bahama Breeze greet guests with an array of multifarious fare, and wine and beer tastings help hone taste buds and research mannerisms for sommelier Halloween costumes. Later in the evening, guests can stretch their bidding muscles with both live and silent auctions or try their hand at a $10,000 putting challenge, which rewards the night's most precise putter with prize money split equally with the PKD Foundation and the night's second-most precise putter with a home in the ninth-hole windmill of the nearest putt-putt course. Tunesmith LaDon Jones soundtracks the evening with live music, adding a relaxed vibe to the night's charity.
