Dining in the Dark is a unique and unforgettable experience. Through a three-course meal eaten under blindfold, guests take a journey into the world of vision loss, discovering a deeper understanding and awareness of what people who are blind or visually impaired face.

“Dining in the Dark awakened my senses to the reality of vision loss. The event also boosted my appreciation for the courage, creativity and resolve that people who are visually challenged quietly demonstrate every day, in navigating the world!”
                                                                          — DAVID LOBO
