Dining in the Dark

Thank you to everyone who supported Vision Forward’s 14th annual Dining in the Dark on Thursday, November 3, 2022 at the Wisconsin Club.

This year’s Dining in the Dark sell-out event helped raise over $165,000 for educational, therapeutic, vision and support services for individuals of all ages who are blind and visually impaired. These specialized services empower people with vision loss to lead active, independent and successful lives.

Two client’s stories were shared as part of this year’s event. View the videos of Edison and Johnson to learn more about their journeys with vision loss.

Dining in the Dark is truly a unique culinary experience that provides guests with insight into what it is like to take on a simple, everyday task, such as eating, without vision. Its powerful impact lies not only in the opportunity it offers for diners to encounter their other senses—touch, taste, smell and hearing—on a level rarely experienced by people who are sighted, but also in the awareness it creates of just how much can be accomplished without vision.

Did you miss the event but would still like to participate by making a donation?
