Dining in The Dark

We are excited to announce the return of Dining in The Dark, an exceptional event giving guests an intimate understanding of vision loss.

What happens in the dark?

Dining in The Dark is a rare and unique sensory experience that you will never forget. Guests enter the Embassy Suite’s beautiful dining area in two phases. First, a blackout chamber allows your eyes to adjust to complete darkness. After five minutes, you will be escorted to your table by your SWAT guide. Once at your table, your senses will begin their journey that will take you to a whole new heightened appreciation of smell, taste, sound, and touch.

I can see, and that is why I can be happy, in what you call the dark, but which to me is golden. I can see a God made world, not a manmade world.

We are pleased to offer your company the opportunity to be part of this very special event. Dining in The Dark is a wonderful opportunity for team-building, as well as increasing diversity and disability awareness at your company.

Success Stories: Jessica Thomas

Success Stories at Savannah CBLV

My name is Jessica Thomas. Since attending Savannah Center for Blind and Low Vision, I have not only freed myself from my mental cage of depression, anger, and fear of life… I have also found new goals and views on life and what I am capable of as well. The Center is not only an education, loving, caring environment; it also serves as a safe haven for emotional support for those with low vision or even blindness. Being at the taught me that family does extend beyond your parents, sisters, brothers, etc., which is more than I expected. It’s been with great pleasure that I have been blessed with the opportunity to attend the Center and work alongside my peers, teachers, and the staff. If you’re looking for a personal view or inside view about the school or staff… then look no further. The Center opens doors for students…reintroducing them to a world of vision without having to have sight and teaching that you can do anything…you just have to do it different.
