RUSSELL — It’s an exploration of taste, smell and touch during the second annual Savour the Senses virtual event in support of DeafBlind Ontario Foundation on Oct. 23.
Presented by the Lions Club of Russell, guests are invited to experience the intertwining flavours of fine chocolate, wine and moonshine as a chocolatier, sommelier and whiskey maker discuss pairings and more during an intimate, entertaining and informative 90-minute online event.
Prior to Savour the Senses, guests will receive a package with three varieties of fine chocolate, two bottles of wine and a moonshine sampler for two via contactless delivery.
“Savour the Senses is a great event to learn how to pair wines, chocolate and food in an unpretentious way. Because it’s from the comfort of your own home, you don’t need to dress up, book a sitter or have a designated driver,” said Susan Manahan, Director of Development and Communications at DeafBlind Ontario Services.
New this year is an online auction, which is live two weeks prior to the event and is open to everyone, not just guests of the virtual event.
Savour the Senses takes place online from 7:30 to 9 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 23. Visit deafblindontario.com for tickets by Oct. 7 or call 1-855-340-3267, ext. 289.
DeafBlind Ontario Services is a non-profit organization that provides individuals who are Deaf, hard of hearing, non-verbal and deafblind with an array of services so they can live and thrive within the community.
