Orlando – People with vision problems, and those who are hungry, live way differently than the rest of us. One dinner will help you learn what it’s like for those neighbors. We’re talking isolation.

On June 20, Lighthouse Central Florida (note: the site is temporarily down) invites us all to its 6th Annual Dining in the Dark experience. You’ll sit in complete darkness while listening to music, sipping cocktails, nibbling on hors d’oeuvres, and supping on a three-course dinner.

How will the servers get you your meal? Ha! You’ll love this. SWAT officers of the Orlando police department will bring the servers, and they’ll be wearing night-vision goggles. Super-fascinating, and all for a good cause.

Dining in the Dark will be held at the Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida and will cost $175, $2,500 for a table for 10. Proceeds will benefit "essential programs involving both hunger and vision rehabilitation services in the area."
