2020 Dining in the Dark

January 18, 2020 @ 6:00PM — 10:00PM Eastern Time (US & Canada)

Dining in the Dark is a rare and unique sensory experience that you will never forget. Guests enter the Embassy Suite’s beautiful dining area in two phases. First, a blackout chamber allows your eyes to adjust to complete darkness, then you will be escorted to your table by your SWAT guide. Once at your table, your senses will begin their journey that will take you to a new and heightened appreciation of smell, taste, sound, and touch. Dining is a great way for friends, families, and companies to enjoy a unique night of fun while supporting Savannah Center for Blind and Low Vision.

Dining in the Dark is an event that will test your senses and create a new world where you will discover a deeper understanding of vision loss.

The journey begins with a cocktail party, great silent auction items and fun activities. The next step of the journey will be into the dark, guided by the Savannah Police Department’s SWAT team, using their night vision technology to guide you through a spectacular three course meal prepared by the chefs at 39 Rue de Jean.

All proceeds benefit the Savannah Center for Blind and Low Vision’s efforts to help those who are blind or visually impaired regain their independence.
