The dinner consists of a secret menu kept quiet until the end of the event with a big reveal. Guests utilize their other available senses throughout the dinner while getting to know their server, an individual with a visual impairment or blindness.
Before and during the dinner, There will be live music, a silent auction, raffle, cash bar, and sensory room experience.
