TOLEDO, OH (WTOL) - Dozens of people had the chance to take part in a unique dinner experience Wednesday to raise money and awareness for blindness.
The Sight Center of Northwest Ohio hosted the 6th Annual Dining in the Dark gala.
Guests enjoyed a fine dinner in simulated darkness.
Organizers say it is a way to help people understand what the blind go through on a daily basis.
"We like to say put this blindfold on, let us show you a couple tips and tricks and show you its not a scary thing," said executive director Stacey Butts. "Its not obviously what its like to be totally blind; its definitely just a glimpse into what its like for someone to lose their vision."
Money raised at the dinner will benefit the Sight Center.
WTOL's Chris Vickers served as the evening's emcee.
