Dine in the Dark in Reading, PA is an event that brings awareness to people who can ' t ever take that blindfold off, and hopefully it gives the people participating in the event a bit of insight into what dinner is like for those who are blind or visually impaired. If you ask the 150 people who participated in this event, they will most likely tell you this experience was scary and very different. At the end of the event, those who participated informed us about how great of an experience this was and how much they have learned through such a short amount of time. As future teachers of the visually impaired (TVIs) this is exciting to hear and we hope to be able to educate our peers more about visual impairments. Dine in the Dark is an event that TVIs and future TVIs put together along with the Berks County Vision Resource Center. N ot only does this dinner raise awareness for people who are visually impaired or blind, but it also raises money for the Berks County Vision Resource Center and the students here at Kutztown University that are enrolled
