Following a 6:00p.m. cocktail reception, Dining in the Dark guests will be ushered into the main ballroom where the honorees will be presented with the Foundation’s Visionary Award and the lights will be lowered, leaving the room in total darkness. For nearly an hour, guests will enjoy their entree using only their senses of smell, sounds and touch. Blind servers for each table will help guests navigate through this new experience. The Orange County Dining in the Dark will benefit the Foundation Fighting Blindness, a national non-profit organization and the largest source of non-governmental funding for retinal degenerative disease research in the world.
