EGGSHIBITION XX: 'EVOLUTION OF THE EGG'
7 p.m., Jack Stephens Center, UALR. $75.

What began 20 years ago as an ambitious and, let's face it, pretty odd idea for a charity benefit — auctioning off egg-shaped objects decorated by artists and celebrities — has since turned into one of the biggest local fundraisers around. Since its inception, Eggshibition has raised upwards of $2 million for Youth Home, the outreach agency for troubled adolescents.

This year, in addition to the decorated eggs, the event is offering weekend trips to New York, Rio and Las Vegas and, for the football fan, primo tickets and a catered tailgate for the Nov. 19 Razorbacks game against Mississippi State as well as two seats in the Jones Family Suite at Cowboy Stadium for a yet-to-be-announced game.
