Community Center for the Blind and Visually Impaired will host Dining in the Dark on Friday, October 27, 2017, 6:00 p.m. The first of its kind in San Joaquin County, guests will have the opportunity to wear sleep shades--removal of vision gives greater awareness of other senses. This unique event gives a glimpse into an unfamiliar world. Waterloo Gun and Bocce, 4343 North Ashley Lane, Stockton, will serve as the venue. Chef Paul Ratto, Heritage Dining and Provisions at Waterloo Gun and Bocce, will prepare delectable delicacies using fresh local ingredients. Tickets cost $75.00 and include a seven course meal, blind olive oil and wine tastings, raffle, and silent auction. Proceeds from the event benefit Community Center for the Blind and Visually Impaired and provide the means by which people who are blind or visually impaired improve and sustain their capabilities and potentials to re establish purpose and self-esteem in their lives and in society. Enjoy friendship, fabulous food, and good times. For more information, contact (209) 466-3836, extension 215.
