Dine in the Dark and Feast With Your Imagination for a Good Cause This November
We engage all of our senses when we eat – taste, smell, sight, hearing and touch. So what happens when we eliminate one of them? By dining blindfolded our taste is heightened, a fact that is highlighted during Dine in the Dark week, which will take place from from 5th – 12th November in aid of The National Council for the Blind of Ireland (NCBI).
Throughout the week, restaurants all over the country will Dine in the Dark helping to raise vital funds for life-changing sight loss services in Ireland.
By wearing blindfolds,Dine in the Dark customers have a truly immersive experience, as normal barriers collapse and guests begin to feast their imagination, not their eyes.
At an exclusive event in The Dylan Hotel on Monday 9th October, the NCBI launched its second annual edition of the week long campaign.
According to Chris White, CEO of NCBI: “Dine in the Dark is a wonderful evening out for people. Dining under blindfold allows us to challenge our thinking around sight loss and the people affected by it. It is also a great way to give back to your local community and support people living with sight loss.”
There are currently 51,718 people with sight loss in Ireland and this number is rising.
Funds raised through Dine in the Dark will support NCBI’s emotional support, advice and counselling services so the charity is encouraging every restaurant in Ireland to get involved in the campaign, which is now in its second year.
