Benefiting the Center for the Visually Impaired
Sunday, October 1, 2017, 4:00 p.m.
Georgia Tech Hotel and Conference Center
The Center for the Visually Impaired (CVI) presents the second annual Dining in the Dark fundraiser on Sunday, October 1, 2017. The event will be held at Georgia Tech Hotel and Conference Center, located at 800 Spring Street NW, starting at 4:00 p.m.
Dining in the Dark is a unique fundraising event designed to raise awareness about vision loss, with all proceeds benefiting CVI. Guests will experience a sumptuous three-course meal served in complete darkness. Dinner will be preceded by a reception during which guests will gain insight on fully engaging all of their senses to talk, sit, and eat in the dark.
The featured menu will remain a mystery and will be delivered to guests' tables by members of the Atlanta Police Department SWAT Team, who will serve as wait staff for the evening, using night-vision equipment to navigate the dining space in the dark.
Dining in the Dark will expand attendees’ understanding of the challenges that individuals who are blind or visually impaired encounter on a daily basis.
