A TASTE OF THE SHADOWS

July 24, 2017
 

We are getting excited to hold our 4th annual “A Taste of the Shadows” fundraiser on Thursday, October 19, 2017. This signature event, while also lots of fun, focuses on the serious topic of vision loss. We ask that our guests dine while wearing a blindfold to simulate vision loss. A sighted guide joins every table to act as the guests’ “eyes” and provide information and support. Last year, we heard this comment about the effect of this event: “They say that seeing is believing. But sometimes NOT seeing is understanding!” We couldn’t say it better ourselves!

The event is held at the Green Pond Country Club, 3604 Farmersville RD, Bethlehem, PA 18020. It begins at 5:30 pm with a sighted Gathering Hour which includes hors d’oeuvres, a wine-tasting by Franklin Hills Vineyards, a craft beer tasting by Allentown Beverage Co, and our New Focus Raffle.
Following dinner, there will be a program featuring the premier of two new videos about the agency created by Daymarks Productions and ASR Media Productions and the introduction of our 2017 Accessibility Champions.

The ticket price is $75 per person. Invitations to this event will be available in mid-August. Sponsors to date include: Presentation Sponsor: Daymarks Productions; Visual Presentation Sponsor, ASR Media Productions; Invitation Sponsor, Lehigh Eye Specialists, plus the following other sponsors to date: Inova Technologies, Valley National, Laurie Siebert, BB&T, Easton Coach, Morgan Stanley and Elite Sealcoating. More sponsor are welcome and some sponsorship levels include tickets.

For more information, call 610-433-6018 x 241. We hope to see you in October!
