The Center for the Visually Impaired (CVI)’s Dining in the Dark event is scheduled
for Sunday, October 1, 2017 at the Georgia Tech Hotel and Conference Center, located at 800 Spring Street NW, from 4:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
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.
The featured menu will remain a mystery and will be delivered to guests’ tables by members of the Atlanta Police Department SWAT Team, who will serve as wait staff for the evening, using night-vision equipment to navigate the dining space in the dark.
Dining in the Dark will expand attendees’ understanding of the challenges that individuals who are blind or visually impaired encounter on a daily basis.
CVI is the only nonprofit organization in Georgia that provides vision rehabilitation services and support to people of all ages. Funds raised through the event support CVI’s life changing services and programs for those impacted by vision loss.
