Participants are encouraged to create teams to raise additional funds for community moms struggling with maternal mental illness.

Zero Restaurant + Bar’s cooking class features the talent of the Zero George culinary team with a dash of seasonal fare served up in the demonstration kitchen.

Tickets must be purchased in advanced, and menus are pre-set and unable to accommodate dietary restrictions.

Comedy Night with Caleb Synan
Caleb Synan is one of the hottest young comedians in the country, thanks in part to his unique background as a preacher’s kid from a small southern town and his ability to relate to any and every crowd he steps in front of. The show is produced by Keith Dee, one of Charleston’s biggest independent comedy show producers.

May 7. 7 p.m. May 8. 9 p.m. $15/ticket. Southern Roots. 1083 E. Montague Ave. North Charleston. southernrootssmokehouse.com

Mother’s Day pARTy!
Celebrate moms with a cute “Mommy and Me” elephant painting you create yourself with a little guidance. Pair up with your mom to each paint one half of a canvas, bringing together a larger work of art when you’re both complete. No creative or artistic skills required; connect with each other over a glass of wine and a night of laughs, and leave knowing how to paint a little bit more than when you came in.

May 9. 1-3 p.m. $38/ticket. Painting with a Twist. 2511 N. Main St. Summerville.
