Dining in the Dark is Lighthouse of the Big Bend’s annual fundraising event that gives guests a unique sensory awareness. Nearly 300 Dining in the Dark guests experience food, drinks and conversation as they may have not before –without sight! For a short period of time, guests are given perspective into what Lighthouse clients experience on a daily basis, life without sight. The three-course meal is served by the Leon County Sheriff’s Office SWAT Team using their night vision goggles. And the menu is SECRET!


The “Paula Bailey Inspirational Community Member” award is presented in honor of Paula Bailey, former client and board member, who became deaf and blind due to meningitis. The Award is given to a blind community member in her memory, who has similarly overcome obstacles and become an inspiration to us all.
