Hundreds Dine in the Dark for awareness

COLLEGE STATION, Tex. (KBTX) - The Brazos Valley Center for Independent Living hosted their fifth annual Dining in the Dark event Saturday.

The sold out event featured a cash bar, live music and a sensory room.

“The event features around a multi-course meal that takes place in total darkness in the Hilton ball room,” said Shelby Catron of BVCIL. “The meal is a complete secret until the very end when the lights come on we’ll reveal it, but up until then we are very tight lipped.”

The purpose of the fundraiser is to raise awareness and educate residents on the capabilities of those who are blind.
