Leader Dogs for the Blind, Dinner in the Dark

Leader Dogs for the Blind empowers people who are blind or visually impaired with lifelong skills for safe and independent daily travel. The non-profit’s second annual “Dinner in the Dark,” held at the MGM Grand Detroit, presented over 400 patrons with many different experiences, including eating the evening’s 3-course meal blindfolded as well as a blindfolded guided walk through an obstacle course with a leader dog. Thirty dogs, in various stages of their training, attended the event which raised nearly $200,000 for programs and services for people who are blind, visually impaired or deaf-blind.
