Blind Children’s Learning Center's interactive dining in the dark experience, Vision Beyond Sight, returns in 2019.
Building on the success of the inaugural, sold out event, Vision Beyond Sight is moving to Marconi Automotive Museum—which features a stunning $30 million classic car collection—to bring even more of Blind Children’s Learning Center’s supporters closer to the experience of a child who is blind or visually impaired.
The second annual Vision Beyond Sight will give children from birth to age 22 the ability to see far beyond what their eyes allow.
Guests will give hundreds of children with visual impairments a specialized education that caters to the unique needs associated with blindness and other visual impairments. By attending, you will give children the ability to overcome any obstacle.
