San Diegans Dine In The Dark To Help Fight Blindness

Posted: Updated:
It was a dining experience that dozens of people will never forget.

Diners attended a Dining in the Dark event put on by the Foundation Fighting Blindness at the US Grant Hotel Thursday night.

People who attended the event experienced what it's like to be visually-impaired or blind. Attendees were served by a blind staff and struggled to complete simple tasks in the dark - even handling their food.

It was all part of the message the event was designed to demonstrate.

"That they will understand a little better what people with serious vision impairments and blindness live with day in and day out," said James Minow with the Foundation Fighting Blindness.
