COMING SOON TO TALLAHASSEE

    “DINING IN THE DARK” TALLAHASSEE

    OCTOBER 18, 2009

    What is it? thThe 5 Annual Paula Bailey Dining in the Dark event is a

    unique dinner to raise awareness about blindness and raise

    funds for the local non-profit serving the blind, Lighthouse of

    the Big Bend (formerly FIRE.) We are honoring Paula

    Bailey, a former client and Board member, who was both

    blind & deaf from meningitis, and passed away in 2005.

What happens at the event?

    Experience food, drink and conversation as you may never have before without your sight.

    Your other senses are stimulated to savor the smell, taste and texture of your dining experience. This year we will have an exciting new menu, the Leon County Sheriff’s Office SWAT Team will once again wait on you with their night vision goggles, and after dinner the Paula Bailey “Inspirational Community Member Award” will be presented.

When and where will this take place?

    Sunday, October 18, 2009, 5-8pm, at the University Center Club in the FSU Stadium.
