New Vision for Independence is hosting our second audible Easter egg hunt on April 15 at Hickory Point Park in Tavares. This event seeks to give visually impaired children in Lake and Sumter Counties the opportunity to participate in the annual tradition of an Easter egg hunt, as well as give sighted children the opportunity to experience, in a small way, how a visually impaired friend or classmate may experience the same activity. For the first time, this event is open to the public, and any sighted children will wear blindfolds in order to participate. Hundreds of beeping Easter eggs will be hidden throughout Hickory Point Park for all participants to find. The Easter bunny will also stop by for photos!
Experience food, drink and conversation as you may never have before – without your sight. In this unique dining experience, you will eat dinner in total darkness. The Lake County Sheriff’s Office SWAT Team, as part of a training exercise, will serve you wearing night vision goggles. The seventh annual Dining in the Dark event is designed to raise awareness about blindness and raise funds for New Vision for Independence, our local non-profit serving people with low vision or blindness and their families in Lake and Sumter Counties and The Villages.
