Don’s Appliances recently held a fun and unique wine glass tasting at its Canonsburg location. Riedel the Wine Glass Company representative Doug Cohn designed the evening as an exploration of the impact wine glass shape can have on perceived taste and enjoyment! Twenty guests sampled savory appetizers by Corporate Chef Anthony Marino alongside the fine wines, enjoying dishes like crab cakes with a spicy remoulade sauce, chicken satay with a dark ale mustard, and stuffed porcini mushrooms with a basil pesto sauce, along with an assortment of cupcakes and other sweet treats for dessert. A silent auction featured covetable prizes like a cooking class with Marino, wine tasting sets, and a Miele coffee maker. Miele, one of the top-of-the-line brands Don’s Appliances is known for, co-sponsored the event. Over the course of the night, Don’s Appliances and its generous guests managed to raise a total of $2,500 for Autism Speaks! Says Marino, “It was good friends, good food, and good appliances coming together for one great cause.”
