Dining in the Dark is a fundraising and awareness event that provides guests with a brief glimpse of some of the challenges that people with vision loss encounter in their day-to-day lives.

During the meal, guests will wear blindfolds and learn blindess techniques from our vision services staff, and tablemates who may be blind or visually impaired. This unique dining experience will expand our guest's appreciation of taste, smell, touch, hearing, and vision.

Our goal for Dining in the Dark is to raise awareness abour cision loss and the impact that AVRE's vision rehabilitation services can make. By supporting this event, you will help us continue to offer comprehensive services across the Southern Tier.
