Signature Chefs Auction supports March of Dimes
As if there was any arm-twisting involved to get more than 500 foodies down to the Westin on a Monday for the Signature Chefs Auction, where surprisingly so, there were hardly any in attendance who had come armed with an empty stomach.
“Oh, we had lunch today,” mused Don An, who joined fellow suits John Leinweber, Ken Joel and Hank Thompson for some taste-testing.
More than $140K was whipped up for the March of Dimes while honoree Dr. Giovanni Laneri and chair Roman Hlutkowsky waited for Donato’s to replenish their meatballs. Meanwhile, we tried our hardest to convince owner Donato Coluccio to put himself on the auction block so we’d never have to step foot in the kitchen ever again.
“We can do that … set it up!” he laughed.
