Dining In The Dark

Imagine showing up to an event dressed to the nines. You’re 43 floors above the Tampa Skyline in the Bank of America Building. The drinks are flowing, the music is serenading you and all the other guests that have started to arrive. After an hour you are escorted down the hall into the main room where the music continues to play. You are then asked to take your seat and put on your blindfold. And for the rest of the night, including your 4 course meal you will remain blindfolded. You were challenged to experience what a blind person goes through every day. This was dining in the dark, hosted by the Southeaster Guide Dogs in order to raise money and awareness for the organization. Southeastern Guide Dogs is a non profit organization whose mission is to create and nurture a partnership between visually impaired individuals and a guide dog, facilitating life’s journey and mobility with independence and dignity. Day Time host Cyndi Edwards was there to show support and a silent auction {with the uber talented pet photographers Emiliee Fuss Photography and Pawsitively Pictures donating a session} was also on exhibit to raise money for the group. I was so excited to be a part of their evening. It was an extremely eye opening experience {no pun intended}.
