Charity Fundraiser
Crossroads Urban Center has been around for 50 years, working to benefit low-income Utahns with its food pantry, thrift store, community organizing and more. For its "golden" anniversary, Crossroads is holding its sixth annual Beer, Blues & Brats Benefit Party. If you don't recognize Crossroads, you might know some of its spinoffs—Utahns Against Hunger, Wasatch Community Gardens, the Disabled Rights Action Center, not to mention its work on two Salt Lake City homeless centers and Utah's alternative payroll-deduction giving program. There will also be a silent auction and music from the J.T. Draper Band. Wasatch Presbyterian Church, 1626 S. 1700 East, 801-364-7765, April 17, 2-5 p.m., $45; $250 for a table of 6, bit.ly/1oq9aG5 (tickets), CrossroadsUrbanCenter.org

Sword Competition
You may be no Johnny Depp, but you can still watch presumptive swordsmen swing a sword. Salt Lake City-based United Clans Swordsman Association is hosting its first Sword Competition of the year between its group and students from True Edge Academy of Provo. Both groups are members of the Historical European Martial Arts Alliance, a national nonprofit dedicated to Historical European Swordsmanship. This is a real thing and includes techniques such as long sword, short sword and buckler, dagger, pole hammer and unarmed fighting and defense. East Side Liberty Park by the large stone fireplace, 600 E. 900 South, 801-548-5303 (Travis Emery), April 9, 11 a.m.-4 p.m., free, TheUCSA.com

Gala Fundraiser
You can't get more chichi than La Caille, can you? That's the venue for the 10th annual Alta Gala, a collaborative fundraiser for Alta Community Enrichment (ACE), Friends of Alta and Alta Historical Society. The gala hopes to raise awareness of the arts, environment and history of Alta. If you're a skier, there's also a chance at a drawing for an Alta pass and heliskiing offered by Wasatch Powerbird Guides. There will be hors d'oeuvres stations, dancing, a photo booth and even mobile bidding, if you're not able to attend. Complimentary shuttles are offered from Alta to the event. Dr. Ken Libre will be the recipient of this year's Stellar Award in tribute for his important and unique role in sustaining the community. La Caille, 9565 Wasatch Blvd., Sandy, 801-742-9719, April 8, 7-11:30 p.m., $130; $85 for Alta employees; $20 for a drawing ticket only, AltaGala2016.AFrogs.org

    Yes, we know it's about safety. So much safety. This is why the governor ignored the public—you know, the people who just don't understand how important safety is, and who apparently will take any opportunity to get blitzed on an evil glass of wine over dinner.
