Dining in the Dark
Dining in the Dark is a unique sensory awareness experience that gives guests a first-hand glimpse into the lives of those who are completely blind, taking them on an unforgettable journey in the dark. Created in Germany, Dining in the Dark is a one-of-a kind concept that has been enjoyed by many people across Europe before moving to America in 2005. It’s a culinary encounter of heightened senses that has been experienced by thousands wanting a peek into an unfamiliar world.
The Foundation Fighting Blindness hosts Dining in the Dark events in cities across the nation to raise awareness about the impact of retinal degenerative diseases and to generate funds for sight-saving research. By challenging guests to navigate a meal without sight, the eye-opening experience shines light on the Foundation’s important mission to prevent, treat and cure vision-robbing diseases such as retinitis pigmentosa, macular degeneration and related conditions.
The Foundation hosts two versions of Dining in the Dark.
