Dining in the Dark

Dining in the Dark – a memorable evening for everyone who attended!

Guests at Dining in the Dark were treated to an elegant, four-course meal at Milwaukee’s Bacchus restaurant like never before – they were blind folded.  The event, hosted by Vision Forward Association, took place on Sunday, November 4, 2018.  Proceeds from the dinner help fund support, training, therapy and education options for children, youth, adults and seniors impacted by vision loss.

Crocker Stephenson, a national award-winning journalist at the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, shared how he began losing his vision two years ago, his experiences and how he has been able to continue to thrive in his career as a journalist.  We appreciate Crocker’s willingness to share his personal journey with the attendees.

Special thanks to Mark Baden, Chief Meteorologist, WISN 12, for emceeing our event for the 6th year in a row!  We are grateful for your continued support of Vision Forward and this event!

This unique experience calls attention to the challenges people with vision loss face and the adaptations that allow them to be successful and independent.  This event also helps raise critical funds that support our mission. Vision Forward is the only full‐service organization serving Southeastern Wisconsin; clients travel from as far as northern Wisconsin for the exceptional expertise and programs
