Blind and hungry? Overcoming challenges

Do you like enjoy a nice dinner with a glass of wine? Most of us do.

Imagine having that same dinner without your sight. How do you pour a glass of wine if you can’t see, and even more important, how do you locate that bottle on your table?

The Love is Blind Gala gives you the opportunity to experience a small slice of life as a sightless person.

Guest will wear a mask during their dinner, thus obscuring their vision. Each table will have a sighted guide to ensure that no one experiences undue hardship.

The event will feature live and silent auctions, three speakers, including a blind, former Tour de France contestant and a Paralympian. Enjoy the beautiful live music of Angelic Visions.

It takes place on Saturday, April 2, at Fort Langley Golf Club, 9782 McKinnon Crescent in historic Fort Langley.

This is a fundraiser for Langley Pos-Abilities society to enable them to supply assistive devices for those in Langley who can’t fund them on their own, as well as serve as an educational resource. Some tickets are still available for $150.

“Call 604-961-0117 or visit the website langley.pos-abilities.org now and reserve your tickets for this one of a kind, unforgettable event,” said Zosia Ettenberg, president of Langley Pos-Abilities Society.
