Dinner in the Dark

Presented by AAA - The Auto Club Group

Dinner in the Dark is Leader Dogs for the Blind’s signature fundraising event and an experience like no other! Enjoy an incredible dinner under blindfold while helping to raise money to change the lives of people who are blind.

While mingling with other guests, have your picture taken with a Canine Ambassador on our “black carpet” entrance, try your luck at the Blind Wine Pull for $25, peruse our pop-up Leader Dog gift shop and try our Walk the Walk experience, an immersive orientation & mobility space where guests can walk with a white cane and participate in daily activity skills. Blindfold Walks with a Leader Dog in training or canine ambassador are available only with the purchase of a VIP ticket.
