Imagine eating a meal while being blind. That’s the idea behind New Vision for Independence’s Dining in the Dark event, which is planned for April 17 at Lake Receptions, 4425 N. Highway 19A, Mount Dora. Diners will eat in total darkness and journey into a unique world where smell, taste, sound and texture become more noticeable.
New Vision for Independence provides rehabilitation, community education and support services for people with blindness or low vision.
The event will begin at 6pm with cocktails and a silent auction. During dinner, the lights will be turned off, and food will be served by members of the Lake County Sheriff’s Office SWAT team equipped with night vision capabilities. To order tickets, call 352.435.5040.
