This Week's Events
Tacopacolypse/Northland Gallery, Des Moines
Thrilla in the Skillet is a knock-down drag-out culinary fight to the finish - with proceeds going to the DMARC Food Pantry Network.
The event consists of a three-way cookoff to determine the best potato latke in Des Moines! Up to 120 attendees will join in a public tasting before voting on the “Taster’s Choice”. Following the Taster’s Choice, the three cooks will fry up their best for an “Iron Chef” style judging – a professional chef, local media personality, and two local Rabbis will determine the winner. There will also be a silent auction for items donated by local businesses including fabulous restaurant gift cards, local goods, and other prizes!
Hy-Vee Conference Center, West Des Moines
Twelve years ago, the American Red Cross serving Greater Iowa set out to develop an annual event to honor Iowans who have performed a heroic act. Our heroes are ordinary people doing extraordinary things; they help us when the need is most critical. The Heroes of the Heartland breakfast not only recognizes these heroes but also raises funds to help ensure that the American Red Cross will be prepared and best equipped to help people with food, shelter and comfort during emergencies.

He opens the concert with one of his favorite pieces, The Mauldau, and principal percussionist Aaron Williams makes his solo debut with the Orchestra in Gillingham’s virtuosic and tuneful Marimba Concerto No. 2.
