Our goal of Dining in the Dark is to raise awareness of the impact of vision loss and blindness and to generate funding for our programs and services provided throughout our nine-county service area.

Dining in the Dark is a fundraising and awareness event that provides guests with a brief glimpse of some of the challenges that people with vision loss encounter in their day-to-day lives.

During the meal, guests will wear blindfolds and learn blindness techniques from our vision services staff, and tablemates who may be blind or visually impaired. This unique dining experience will expand our guest’s appreciation of taste, smell, touch, hearing, and vision. Our hope is that our guests will leave with an appreciation and better understanding of the vision rehabilitation services we provide.
