This week, help keep the Beehive State from becoming the Nuclear State at HEAL Utah’s third annual fall benefit, or check out the “Broken Borders” debate on state immigration, featuring Latino activist Tony Yapias and legislators like Rep. Mike Noel, R-Kanab. For the weekend, help out the South Valley Sanctuary by attending a benefit concert and dinner at luxurious French restaurant La Caille.

HEAL Utah Fall Party
Thursday, Nov. 19
Bob Dixson, the mayor of one the country’s most eco-friendly communities, will speak to HEAL Utah supporters during a fund-raising dinner and party tonight. The Kansas town, named—no joke—Greensburg, was essentially leveled by a 2007 tornado. In the aftermath, town planners resurrected Greensburg with wind turbines, sustainable homes and energy-efficient buildings.

Broken Borders
Thursday, Nov. 19
If you want to see how to argue about immigration without getting called a racist or a bleeding heart, take some tips from the U of U debate team. It is hosting an immigration debate that includes Latino activist Tony Yapias; Rep. Mike Noel, R-Kanab; and Dee Rowland, director of the Peace & Justice Commission for the Utah Catholic Diocese.
Utah Museum of Fine Arts, U of U, 410 Campus Center Drive, Nov. 19, 7 p.m., 801-585-7163

South Valley Sanctuary Benefit Concert
Friday, Nov. 20
The West Jordan-based South Valley Sanctuary, which helps men, women and children who have been impacted by domestic violence, is looking for community help for their mission. Thus, they will be hosting a performance by recording artist Hilary Weeks at La Caille restaurant that also comes with dinner. The ticket price will set you back $100, and all proceeds will go a long way to helping out those suffering in Utah because of family violence.
La Caille, 9565 Wasatch Boulevard, Sandy, Nov. 20, 6:30-9 p.m. Tickets available at svsholiday.eventbrite.com
