Guests will enjoy dinner, cocktails, entertainment and will be guided through dinner’s main course while wearing a blindfold.

“We’re very proud to host this unique event for the Greater Cincinnati community that provides our guests with a sense of the challenges that people who are blind face each day. All event proceeds support our mission of empowering people who are blind or visually impaired with opportunities to be independent”, said John Mitchell, CABVI’s President/CEO.  “We will bring together 400 agency supporters for a special evening that promotes CABVI’s services and employment for people with severe vision loss.”

This year, the theme will have a circus feel, using the tag line “The Greatest Show on Earth.” Guests will enjoy a live auction, silent auction, split the pot and much more. Join Honorary Chairperson Cincinnati Bengals Alum Dave Lapham and Q102 DJ Jon (Jon Jon) Curl, who will serve as the emcee.

The agency will honor this year’s Barney H. Kroger Humanitarian Award recipient, Rosemary Bloom. Rosemary joined CABVI’s Board in 1998 and became an Emeritus Trustee in 2010. She is being recognized for her leadership, dedication, and generosity to CABVI and the people they serve.

Tickets for the fundraising event are $150 per guest, or a table of 10 can be purchased for $1,300. All proceeds directly benefit CABVI, their programs and the people they serve each day. The deadline to register for the event is October 26th. (Please note that this event sold out early last year.) To make a reservation for Dining in the Dark, visit www.cincyblind.org.

Through all of its programs and services, it strives to help those who are blind, visually or print impaired lead full and independent lives. CABVI provides services to more than 5,800 people each year.
