Dark Dining

October 26, 2024

Dark Dining is a fine dining experience that benefits programs and services provided by CABVI. The event raises awareness about visual impairments by allowing guests to experience a night with senses other than sight. Guests eat a delicious, multi-course meal while wearing blindfolds that simulate different visual impairments such as glaucoma, cataracts, macular degeneration, and diabetic retinopathy.  Dark Dining raised nearly $1 million towards programs and services for blind and visually impaired individuals.
