Dining in the Dark

6DINING IN THE DARK This unusual event takes place in Whites of Wexford on July 25 to raise money for the National Council of the Blind of Ireland. It is the first fundraiser of its kind to be held in Wexford. This will be a dinner party with a twist as dinners will take to the seats on a table of ten where they will promptly be blindfolded. People can take off their blindfold at any stage during the meal as long as they make a €5 donation to the charity.

The meal will be followed by a blind auction with Jimmy Gahan acting as MC. Entertainment on the night will be from Tina Dunbar and the Wexford Improv Group. Tickets costing €25 are available from the NCBI shop in Wexford.
