Experience an Unforgettable Culinary Event!

A little adventurous and willing to step out of the ordinary to experience the extraordinary...

Dine in the Dark is for you!

Let us take you on a journey of the senses in one of the most unique dinners you will ever experience. While blindfolded, let your senses take over and enjoy the smells, the sounds, the tastes and the textures in a way you never thought possible. With complete vision loss – and the resulting heightening of the other four senses – an evening of Dine in the Dark truly is an extraordinary culinary adventure.

How your support makes a difference

$1,000 - will help four people who have lost their sight relearn everyday activities, like identifying money, dialing a telephone or pouring a cup of tea – crucial skills that can mean the difference between a life of dependence and a life of fulfillment.

$2,500 - will help five seniors learn the skills to safely navigate their communities – such as how to cross safely at an intersection and travel independently to grocery stores, pharmacies and other community resources.

$5,000 - will help three people learn to label kitchen items and prepare meals safely without vision, enabling them to maintain their independence in the home after losing their sight.
