Cincinnati, OH – September 10, 2021– CABVI is pleased to announce our 5th Annual Dining in the Dark on Saturday, November 20th, 2021 from 6-10 PM. Join our emcees, Freddy Mac and Natalie Jones from Q102, in Wonderland at Hard Rock Casino for an unforgettable night as you get a taste of the challenges faced by individuals with vision loss. We will honor our Barney H. Kroger Humanitarian Award Recipient, Marta Bowling. Throughout the evening guests will enjoy dinner and drinks, a silent auction, a faux fur coat raffle (donated by Donna Salyers Fabulous-Furs), split the pot, and a Mad Hatter hat contest.
