Pastor Joe and his daughter Alisha attending Dining in the Dark.
The Fifth Annual Dining in the Dark event, which took place on Sept. 13, at The Shores Resort and Spa, turned out to be a huge success, according to Sid Mickle, the director of development at Center for the Visually Impaired.
"Our 2018 Dining in the Dark event was our most successful ever in terms of funds raised to support our clients," said Mickle.
Dining in the Dark is an event that serves a gourmet dinner in complete darkness, in order to enhance people's perspectives on what it would be like to be blind.
The sellout event had over 250 people in attendance and raised approximately $20,000 that will go towards "changing the lives of blind and visually impaired people in Volusia, Flagler, Putnam and Brevard counties," according to Mickle.
Thank you to those who supported this cause. Your generous efforts are greatly appreciated by Tomoka and CVI.
