Dine in the Dark 2017… A Night To Remember

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 Program on Visual Impairments hosted our annual Dine in the Dark event on Thursday, September 28th, 2017.

In 2017 Dine in the Dark turned into 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 and Kutztown University. 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 the Kutztown University Visual Impairment Program the continued opportunity to help blind and visually impaired children and adults in our community. VRC and KU send out a big THANK YOU to all our event sponsors and attendees!
