Thank You for Making this year’s

a Wonderful Success!

 

with special thanks to all our sponsors

Dine in the Dark offered powerful messages from clients, caregivers, and community leaders personally touched by visual impairment.

Whether from personal experience, a family member, friend, or acquaintance, practically everyone is touched by the reality of blindness or low vision. Realizing the ongoing need for blind and low vision awareness within our community, Vision Resource Center of Berks County along with the Kutztown University Visual Impairment Program presented Dine in the Dark on Thursday, September 27th, 2018 at the Crowne Plaza Reading. The positive community support of this evening’s event allows Vision Resource Center of Berks County and the Kutztown University Visual Impairment Program the continued opportunity to help blind and visually impaired children and adults in our community.
