Five courses, blindfolded. Could you identify what you’re eating?guiding eyes for the blind

From 1 to 4 p.m. on Sunday, March 1, Guiding Eyes for the Blind, a nonprofit in Yorktown Heights that provides guide dogs to the visually impaired, will host the Dine in the Dark fundraiser at Via Vanti! Restaurant & Gelateria in Mount Kisco.

Diners will be given blindfolds and served five courses, relying only on their taste buds to discern flavors and ingredients. Prizes will be awarded to the most perceptive palates.

Tickets for Dining in the Dark are $75 per person. Seating is limited and reservations are required. For more information or to reserve your space, call 914-666-6400 or visit www.viavanti.com.

This is the second Dining in the Dark, following the success of last year’s inaugural benefit event. Guiding Eyes for the Blind, founded in 1954, provides guide dogs, professional training and follow-up support services to people with vision loss at no cost to them, depending solely on contributions to fulfill its mission. Guiding Eyes also places specially trained service dogs with children on the autism spectrum.
