  blind date:  Dining in the Dark  

Dining in the DarkMay 8, 2014. What a wonderful evening!

It was a fabulous night as we enjoyed the 4th annual Blind Date ‘dining in the dark’ experience. This celebration and education opportunity, coupled with fundraising, attracted 116 attendees.

2013 Blind DateThe evening at the Texas Station Convention Center started with a wonderful silent auction. Background music was provided by the UNLV Ragtime Rebels Marimba Band. Bidding was spirited. Many went home with new ‘treasures.’ There was also a very successful raffle.   Attendees wore sleep shades as they enjoyed a 3-course meal. Eating hints were provided and everyone did pretty well. There were lots of comments and much laughter.

Blind Date 2014

The meal was followed by presentation of a newly-updated video bout Blindconnect and Angela's House called "Setting Our Sights on Independence."

Highlight of the evening was a special presentation by the Regional Transportation Commission of Southern Nevada.  MJ Maynard, Assistant General Manager, announced that RTC would be partnering with Blindconnect to open Angela's House, the first blindness skills training center in Nevada, in fall 2015.  Angela's House will located in a state-of-the-art Transit Mobility Center.  This partnership reflects the strength of a governmental entity and a nonprofit working together for the community good.  The excitement was overwhelming.
