DINING IN THE DARK PHOTOS 

Reservations are NOW open!

The Annual Paula Bailey Dining in the Dark fundraising event will celebrate its 15th year, Saturday January 25, 2020. Dining in the Dark, the Big Bend area’s most unique sensory awareness experience, creates a realistic sense of everyday life of those with vision loss. Guests enjoy a three-course meal in complete darkness and the SECRET menu is served by the Leon County Sheriff’s Office SWAT Team using their night vision goggles!

The event begins with a reception featuring visual awareness stations and a silent auction with multiple luxurious vacations for bid, followed by dinner in the dark, where meals will be served by the Leon County Sheriff’s SWAT team, who will be equipped with night vision goggles. The evening will conclude with presenting the Paula Bailey Inspirational Community Member Award, the top honor presented by LBB each year.

The unrivaled occasion is both an awareness and a fundraising event for the LBB, the premier local non-profit serving blind and vision-impaired residents throughout the 11-county Big Bend area.

More than 300 guests will get a realistic sense of everyday life of those with vision loss, when they enjoy a three-course meal in complete darkness. They will experience a dinner designed to stimulate their palate and surprise their taste buds by offering them no idea of what they will eat or drink.

The event begins with a reception followed by dinner, where meals will be served by the Leon County Sheriff’s SWAT team, who will be equipped with night vision goggles. The evening will conclude with presenting the Paula Bailey Inspirational Community Member Award, the top honor presented by the Lighthouse each year.
