Announcement: Senator Bill Montford to Host 10/13 Dining in the Dark

We are thrilled to share that Senator Montford has graciously agreed to host
the Ninth Annual Paula Bailey "Dining in the Dark" benefit, Sunday, October
13, 5:30-8:30 p.m., at the University Center Club! This event will raise
funds to assist children and adults who are blind and visually impaired. At
this unique dinner you will experience food, drink and conversation as you
may never have before - without your sight! In pitch black darkness your
other senses are stimulated to savor the smell, taste and texture of your
dining experience. Conversation becomes more interesting, and ultimately,
this experience will expand your understanding of what individuals who are
blind experience throughout their lives.

There is a reception before dinner with the ever-popular popular basket
raffle. The Leon County Sheriff's Office SWAT Team will once again wait on
you with their night vision goggles. We have an exciting new menu and
tactile 'tic tac toe' to play in the dark between courses. After dinner the
Paula Bailey "Inspirational Community Member Award" will be presented.

Tickets to the event or a scholarship are $60 each. Buy a reserved table for
eight for $600, or a table for ten for $700. Just send a check payable to
the Lighthouse to 3071 Highland Oaks Terrace, Tallahassee, FL 32301. ON-LINE
donations are also now accepted: visit our website at
www.lighthousebigbend.org <http://www.lighthousebigbend.org/>  and click on
the link to "Network for Good" to donate by major credit card or PayPal.
Make sure under "designation" you type Dining in the Dark and we will mail
you your tickets. If you need any other assistance, please feel free to call
942-3658, or email info@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx. Thank you for your
