Our primary fundraiser for the year, this event is a true culinary adventure! You will enjoy a gourmet dinner while wearing a blindfold, and we keep the menu secret.

Come learn about the exciting ways we are working to transform the lives of those without sight. Be prepared for a unique sensory adventure, good food, fun, and dancing to live music!

NEW THIS YEAR! When you purchase your ticket, you can choose to enjoy a flight of wine, courtesy of Angelini Wine, or a flight of beer, courtesy of our newest sponsor, Outer Light Brewing Company! Beer flights are limited to 100, so don’t wait if you prefer a cool brew.

Many Thanks to All of Our Generous Sponsors!
