BACCHUS | 925 E. Wells Street
Vision Forward thanks everyone who came out in support of our 2017 Dining in the Dark event. Guests were treated to another amazingly delicious dinner at Bacchus, in addition to an unforgettable, meaningful experience – being blind folded for the dinner. Dee Ward, dinner speaker, shared his personal journey with vision loss, as a middle-aged husband and father of three who upon waking from back surgery discovered he was blind. The evening left our guests feeling enlightened and informed of the challenges people with vision loss experience and adaptations available for them on their path to independence.
WHAT HAPPENS AT DINING IN THE DARK?
Dining in the Dark is an evening you will never forget. It is a rare and unique sensory experience. Guests wear blindfolds throughout a four-course gourmet dinner and take a journey of awareness into the world of blindness, while they experience dining with a heightened appreciation of smell, taste, sound and touch.
