Have you ever thought about what you would do if you could not see? Would you be able to distinguish the difference between water and ice tea? The Center for the Visually Impaired (CVI)’s Dining in the Dark will expand attendees’ understanding of some of the challenges that individuals who are blind or visually impaired encounter on a daily basis. Dining in the Dark is a unique fundraising event designed to raise awareness about vision loss, with all proceeds benefitting CVI. Guests will experience a sumptuous three-course meal served in complete darkness. Dinner will be preceded by a reception during which guests will gain insight on fully engaging all of their senses to talk, sit, and eat in the dark.
