Dine in the Dark



In our continued effort to raise awareness for the blind and low vision of our community, Vision Resource Center of Berks County along with Kutztown University hosted our annual Dine in the Dark event on Thursday, September 28th, 2017.

 

This year Dine in the Dark was a bigger and wider reaching event by moving from the VRC building to the Crowne Plaza of Reading. Cocktail hour opened the evening with a chance for people to mingle and bid on raffle items. At 6 p.m., the blindfolds went on and dinner was served! After dinner, the visual struggles continued when the blindfolds came off and glasses that simulate a variety of eye ailments were worm at the self-serve dessert stations! Over 150 people experienced a one-of-a-kind evening of education and inspiration with firsthand accounts from clients, staff, and friends of Vision Resource Center of Berks County. It was truly an evening of light being shed in the dark. Many in attendance raved about the food, the presentations, and a humbling appreciation for sight and those who struggle daily with low vision.

Your support allows Vision Resource Center of Berks County and Kutztown University’s Department of Teachers of the Visually Impaired the continued opportunity to help blind and visually impaired children and adults in our community. VRC sends out a big THANK YOU to all our event sponsors and attendees!
