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

Guests of Dining in the Dark will be treated to an elegant, four-course meal at Milwaukee’s Bacchus restaurant like never before – they will be blind folded.  The event, which is hosted by Vision Forward Association, a nonprofit organization with a 100 year commitment to supporting people who are blind or visually impaired, will take place on Sunday, November 3, 2019.  Proceeds from the dinner will help fund support, training, therapy and education options for children, youth, adults and seniors impacted by vision loss.

Dinner Speaker – Michael Nye

Michael Nye will share his seven year journey of listening to the stories of men and women who are blind and visually impaired.  He crafted these insightful narratives into the ‘My Heart is Not Blind’ exhibition, featuring artistic portraits of the individuals and an audio recording of their personal perspective on blindness.


Be part of an exclusive fundraising event unlike any other in our community.  Attend next year’s event or become a sponsor and help Vision Forward Association provide vital programs that assist children and adults with vision loss in achieving their highest level of self-sufficiency.
