  • Dan Uggla and Braves teammates host second annual Celeberity Waiter Night

It doesn't get much better than committing gluttony for a good cause. Check out these events that will fill your belly and give you good karma:

This Tuesday, July 3, Woodfire Grill will host their annual BBQ & Beer celebration from 5:30-11 p.m. Guests can enjoy executive chef Kevin Gillespie's three-course meal for $38. The dinner includes an appetizer course, an entree course featuring a BBQ plate, Brunswick stew and two traditional sides, and a classic banana pudding dessert prepared by Woodfire's pastry chef, Chrysta Poulos.

Proceeds from beer sales will go to the "Save the Hooch" campaign, which was started by Sweetwater Brewery in 2005 to advocate the protection of the Chattahoochee River.

Get ready to be starstruck. The Atlanta Braves's second baseman Dan Uggla and a few teammates - Freddie Freeman, Brian McCann, Martin Prado, Jonny Venters, and Mike Minor - will be hosting the second annual Dan Uggla's Celebrity Waiter Night at STK. On July 16 at 7 p.m., Uggla and teammates will be serving guests four courses of STK's signature dishes and fine wines. A silent and live auction will be hosted at the event. Proceeds will benefit Dan Uggla's Diamonds in the Rough Foundation. Tickets are limited.

The Atlanta Community Food Bank's (ACFB) monthly Supper Club will be hosted at The Spence on Tuesday, July 17 from 5:30-10 p.m. The dinner event seeks to help fight hunger, and will do so by donating 20 percent of each diner's tab to Atlanta's Table, the prepared food rescue project of the ACFB.

Chef Richard Blais of FLIP, HD1, and now The Spence, will work alongside chef Adrian Villarrel, former executive chef of TAP to bring a tasty philanthropic experience to each diner.
