Mario Batali returns to Las Vegas when the Mario Batali Foundation brings the Swing Session Las Vegas Celebrity Golf Classic for two days in June. Batali, who has four restaurants in Las Vegas, raises funds for kids to be "well read, well fed and well cared for."

The shindig kicks off with Burgers in the Bunker at B&B Burger & Beer at the Venetian from 9 p.m. to midnight on Friday, June 5. Then on Saturday, June 6, the party heads out to Cascata, the golf course in Boulder City, for the Swing Session Celebrity Golf Classic. Guests hit the golf course with food and drink along the way. A golf clinic led by Hank Haney, Tiger Woods’ former swing coach, kicks off the day at 9:30 a.m. with a shotgun start at 10:30 a.m.

The night ends with the 19th Hole at Carnevino Italian Steakhouse at the Palazzo with samples of dry-aged prime beef paired with Italian wines, celebrity chefs and TV personalities. The night includes a silent auction.

Tickets for all three events are $3,500 per person and a group of four can grab all three events for $12,500. Burgers in the Bunker and 19th Hole pre- and post-event party tickets are $100 and $250, respectively. For tickets, email Susan Marzano.
