“An Eye-Opening Glimpse into the Lives of Those Living with Visual Impairment”
Wanna spend an evening blindfolded? Now that we have your attention…. no, it’s not what you’re thinking.
The Olmsted Center for Sight is hosting its sixth annual Dining in the Dark gala. On Tuesday, September 19th, attendees of this annual fundraiser will dine blindfolded at the Hyatt Regency in downtown Buffalo for an evening of cocktails, raffles, auctions, awards, and of course, noms on noms.
The evening begins at 5:30pm, when guests are welcome to enjoy cocktails and hors d’oeuvres while also participating in a basket and bike raffle, as well as an Art in the Dark Auction. Dinner is served at 7:00pm, along with the presentation of the Herb Siegel Visionary Award, an award presented to an individual with an immense impact on the Olmsted Center for Sight and the blind community. The Keynote Speaker will be Melissa Loffler who was helped by the Olmsted Center when she lost her vision suddenly at the age of 45, followed by a live auction.

What’s on the menu you ask? After cocktails and hors d’oeuvres, dinner will consist of chili dusted chicken accompanied by rice, vegetables, a mixed green salad, bread (who can forget bread) and finished off with a chocolate temptation dessert. Dining in the Dark, you had us at “cocktails.”
Tickets are on sale now and include hors d’oeuvres, wine, beer, dinner and dessert. A selection of six sponsorship levels and three program advertisements are also available. Feel free to find out more about these opportunities and to also purchase a ticket at
