Mark your calendars. For the fourth year, Congregation Beth Shalom (CBS) is holding its annual “Let’s Eat Out” Fundraiser on Nov. 3.

It’s easy: Sign up and RSVP for a gourmet meal at a CBS host’s home at 5:30 p.m., then join everyone at 8 p.m. for a decadent dessert buffet at CBS. The cost is $36 per person. Contact CBS to RSVP by Oct. 31: (248) 547-7970 and give first, second and third choices as seats fill up fast.

Childcare is provided for $20 per child, including Jerusalem Pizza and movie inside CBS, so you can pay the night of the event and pick up your kid(s) after dessert.
