Lately, we’ve kept our photographer Francie Aufdemorte busy by having her cover plenty of Sundance Film Festival events—many of which will be on the site this week.

After the fest, we’re not slowing down our coverage, and to prove it, we’ll send our photographer Abbie Crane to the Club Chili Open Dinner and Auction and we’ll be getting photos from  the Utah First LEGO League State Championship.

All you have to do is show up and smile for our camera. Here’s the scoop on both events, coming up this Friday and Saturday:

Rotary Club of Sugar House Chili Open Dinner and Auction
Friday, Jan. 27 (social hour and auction from 5:30 to 7 p.m., dinner at 7 p.m.)
The Grand America, 555 S. Main Street, SLC

The golfing event for the Rotary Club will be held on Saturday at Wheeler Farm, but join us the night prior at The Grand America for the kick off event. Enjoy a fantastic dinner and bid on silent auction items at $75 per person. The next day, at the golf tournament, enjoy all the chili you can eat and golf for only $7 per person or $25 for a family of four.

Utah First LEGO League State Championship
Saturday, Jan. 28 (parade of teams at 8 a.m., awards at 4 p.m.)
University of Utah Students Union Ballroom, 200 S. Central Campus Drive, SLC

Even if your kid isn’t on one of the teams in the championship, we highly recommend checking out the intersection of technological innovation and LEGOs as kids build efficient, exciting robotic machines with those little building blocks.
