The 85-piece Dale Chihuly Northwest show ends its run at the Tacoma Art Museum. From 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. you may see baskets to "Pilchuck Stumps," plus pieces from Chihuly's private collection of objects ranging from Native American baskets and wool blankets to canoes and Edward S. Curtis photogravures. In addition, at 2 p.m., Author Dennis Reed discusses Photographer Virna Haffer and some of her West Coast contemporaries at TAM.

The motto of the annual Pierce County Hunger Walk is, "Fighting hunger, one step at a time." It's a little cheese-ball, but it's also totally appropriate. According to promotional hype, last year, "more than 1,800 feet (900 or so people, we presume) ran, walked, shuffled and pedaled around Waughop Lake at Fort Steilacoom Park in Lakewood," all raising money to fight hunger in Pierce County and beyond. This year's goal is to raise $350,000, with half of the proceeds from Hunger Walk will benefit the Emergency Food and the other half going to international hunger relief agencies designated by each walker, including FISH Food Banks, St. Leo's Food Connection and several other food banks in the area. Head to Fort Steilacoom Park at noon and walk.

If you have yet to fully experience the musical majesty of the mandolin, today offers perhaps the perfect opportunity to do just that, as the Tacoma Main Library welcomes the Seattle Mandolin Orchestra performing "The Italian Concert" at 2 p.m.

"Tonight We Shine: A Benefit For Connie Meredith Bowen" is a fundraiser for Bowen who still struggles from a motorcycle accident 30 years later featuring Blues Redemption, Al Earick Band, Maia Santell, The Jupiter Order at 3 p.m. inside The Swiss.

Seattle's award-winning world music trio Correo Aereo introduces a stunning array of string and percussive instruments with silken vocal harmonies in a sensual combination that is both viscerally ancient and vibrantly contemporary at 7 p.m. inside Traditions Cafe in Olympia.
