This week's issue of the Times, our annual philanthropy issue, has a story on Our House, which provides shelter and wraparound services to the working poor. Here's a way to help Our House and keep your clothes clean while you cook: The 2015 Tie One On, Our House's live and silent auction of aprons designed by Arkansas artists paired with themed packages,6 p.m. to 9 p.m. tonight (Dec. 3) at Pavilion in the Park. Tickets are $55; call Lizzy Chandler at 374-7383, ext. 120, for more information.

Cooking out: Maybe you'll want to bid on this apron by Emily Wood:
