Leader Dogs for the Blind, Dinner in the Dark

Leader Dogs for the Blind held its annual “Dinner in the Dark,” at the MGM Grand, Detroit. Over 750 attending guests were treated to a black carpet entrance and an opportunity for pictures with a Canine Ambassador. A three-course dinner was served under blindfold while patrons were guided through their meals. The evening concluded with a Motown Revue featuring the legendary Contours, Miracles and Vandellas. Over 20 dogs and puppies, in various stages of their training, also attended the event which raised funding for programs and services for people who are blind, visually-impaired or deaf-blind.
