Dining in the Dark
**Note: Dining in the Dark 2020 has been rescheduled to July 10.
New Vision for Independence and presenting sponsor Lake Eye Associates will host the 10th annual Dining in the Dark on April 17, 2020!
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. This fundraiser meets fun night-out is a great way to learn more about both the challenges faced by those with visual impairment but also how those challenges can be overcome so blindness does not have to mean “the end.”

Where: Lake Receptions, 4425 N. HWY 19A, Mount Dora
