 FREEDOM GUIDE DOGS FOR THE BLIND THREE DOG NIGHT DINNER

April 24th, 2014

Click on the link above to get your printable ticket reservation form for this year’s event!

Freedom’s Dining in the Dark event was a huge success and raised almost $10,000 to support our work!  Diners enjoyed a silent auction offering lots of fun items as well bidding on a personalized charcoal portrait of a pet or person by Chris O’Herron of Almost Home Studios.  During dinner when participants were blindfolded, many diners were challenged by pouring iced water from a large pitcher into glasses and buttering a dinner roll!  Diners also commented that it was easy to feel somewhat isolated even though they knew they were sitting with numerous other folks.  The experience was certainly impactful and helped all of us to understand a bit more about the challenges of being visually impaired.   Watch for Save the Date information for next year’s event!

Though the weather was slightly challenging……a good time was had by people and pups alike!  Many visitors tried the blindfold walk, puppies played and it was a great opportunity for visitors, friends, clients and puppy raisers to come together.  There was plenty of food, fun, conversation and damp dogs!

Thanks to all who came out to join us!
