WRBH Reading Radio went above and beyond for its early November fundraiser this year. The organization, a locally broadcast 24-hour radio station dedicating to reading news, literature and more to the blind, celebrated its 31st year on 88.3 FM and its 13th year on the Internet this year. On the evening of November 11, the organization hosted “A Blind Taste” at local hotspot La Petite Grocery.

The evening consisted of cocktails, an elegant five-course meal created by La Petite Grocery executive chef Justin Devillier and a live auction emceed by Angela Hill and Charles Smith. The auction featured Saints tickets, a print of one of George Rodrigue’s iconic Blue Dog paintings, and a unique pig roast experience for 25 at your home, cooked by local celebrity chefs Justin Devillier, Bart Bell and Aaron Burgau.

The highlight of the evening was the innovative twist – beginning in the first course, guests enjoyed their meal blindfolded. Guests enjoyed the unique flavors and wine pairings with a heightened sense of taste as their vision was darkened. Challenging guests to live as their listeners live, the organization’s evening succeeded on both levels, raising money and awareness.
