DINING IN THE DARK

Dining In The Dark

Dining In The Dark is our annual gala. This is a great opportunity for all of our supporters, partners, candidates, and team members to interact and celebrate the accomplishments this community is taking care of.

The unique dining experience of eating with the lights off and blind folded opens the eyes of all attendees to what it is like to be Blind or Visually Impaired. It is a fun way to learn and share the experience with your peers.

Please consider attending the January 27th, 2018 Dining In The Dark Gala.
