Last updated on July 2nd, 2019 at 10:01 am

The Badger Association of the Blind and Visually Impaired will host Dining in the Dark, a fundraiser designated to raise awareness and develop a deeper understanding of what it is like to be blind.

According to the organization, by 2030 the number of Americans affected by age-related blindness is expected to double.

Dining in the Dark will be held at Bacchus, 925 E. Wells St., at Sunday, Nov. 8 beginning at 5 p.m.

Dining in the Dark allows individuals to eat an entire meal in complete darkness, with the aid of low lighting and a blindfold. A special menu was created by award-winning chef Adam Siegel to stress the sense of smell, taste and touch.

Tickets for the event are $250 and include a four course meal, wine, beer and valet parking. Visit www.dininginthedarkmke.org for more details.
