Dining in the Dark

Dine for a night without sight

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.”

When: April 17, 2020 | Cocktails & silent auction 6:00 | Dining experience 7:15

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

Tickets: tbd

Menu: tbd

We will post more info as we have it. We look forward to seeing you!
