Good works don’t have to interfere with your powder days or your dinner plans. Hit the slopes on Saturday, then join a dinner and auction to benefit eye-care efforts in Africa. You can also show your support for the local pay-what-you-can nonprofit One World Cafe, which is hosting a fundraising dinner. Later, dance off those calories and fight breast cancer at the Forever Pink Prom.
