New Interactive Dining Experience lets Guests
Walk in the Shoes of a Lighthouse Client
NEW PORT RICHEY, FL – October 24, 2022 — The Lighthouse for the Visually Impaired and Blind is pleased to announce the details for its 7th Annual Dining in the Dark! The event will take place on Friday, November 18, 2022, from 6 pm to 10 pm, at Silverthorn Country Club in Spring Hill. We are so excited about this event as it’s our first in-person Dining in the Dark since the pandemic began and it’s our first ever interactive dining experience.
This year, guests will enjoy an interactive reception where they will visit hands-on stations and step into the shoes of a Lighthouse client. At the stations, guests will be blindfolded and taught basic independent living skills, such as how to use a white cane, decipher food on a plate, navigate a cell phone, and complete a special craft provided by the Lighthouse teens. There is also a delicious buffet, silent auction, chance raffle, dancing and more! Dress is business casual. Sponsorships are available from $250 to $5,000. Individual tickets are $75 each. Visit www.lvib.org/events/dining-in-the-dark for more information.
Proceeds from Dining in the Dark are used to help the Lighthouse meet the need for programs and services provided to our clients and their families. Since 1983, the Lighthouse has served tens of thousands of people who are visually impaired and blind. The mission of the Lighthouse is to educate, empower, and employ people who are visually impaired and blind.
