The Savannah Center for Blind and Low Vision Dining in the Dark silent auction is now live. The online auction benefits the sold-out 6th Annual Dining in the Dark Event held at the Enmarket Arena on Thursday, January 26th.

“Our mission-related event, Dining in the Dark, has once again sold out! Even though we are in the 6th year of this event, our sponsors and ticket holders in the community continue to show their support for our visually impaired neighbors. We salute the spirit of Savannah and the coastal area as they join us in continuing our mission to help all with vision loss, regain their confidence and independence.” shares Lois Modell, SCBLV Executive Director.
“We are extremely excited and thankful for all the outpouring of support for this year’s Dining in The Dark silent auction. We are fortunate to have an amazing wide range of items that will appeal to everyone. Auction items include hotel stays at The Thompson, The Alida, and The Desoto to Jewelry from Harkleroad Jewelers and 13 Secrets, an entire Savannah Experience to include a Step One Auto Jeep Wrangler weekend rental, and tickets to the season finale with the Savannah Philharmonic to travel options with ChristiK Travel and The Freedom Boat Club. There is also an array of restaurant options to bid on, from Cha Bella, Erica Davis Low Country to The Crab Shack,” states Dining in the Dark 2023 Silent Auction Chair, Michelle Stenson. “Also participating are RyLite 360 Photo Booth, JK Productions Lighting and Sound and a Commissioned Portrait by Sanders Fine Portraits, AND SO MUCH MORE…We don’t want to ruin all the surprises, adds Stinson.”
The event offers guests a peek into an unfamiliar world of total blindness and helps them to discover a new, deeper understanding of vision loss. Dining in the Dark would not be possible without the support of the Savannah SWAT Team who escort the guests and serve dinner in complete darkness, our patrons and sponsors: Georgia Eye Institute, Charles C. Taylor and Samir Nikocevic Charitable Foundation, Step One Automotive Group, Oak View Group, JIT, WJCL 22, Savannah Area Chamber of Commerce, Gulfstream, Pat Mathis Construction Co., and Queensborough Bank.
