The Experience

Join us on August 7, 2021, for a journey of the senses and experience the sounds, smells, and tastes from the perspective of those who are visually impaired. 

For the 11th annual Dining in the Dark, Bosma has created a special adventure, Independence Island, for you to enjoy! Your night in the tropics includes a sumptuous gourmet dinner, VIP and cocktail reception, silent and live auction, casino games, and much, much more!

Bosma Visionary Opportunities Foundations is hosting Dining in the Dark to raise funds for the comprehensive vision rehabilitative services that BVOF provides for those with vision loss. The need for these services is substantial, especially at this time when Indiana's unemployment rate for the blind and visually impaired stands at 59%. Your participation in this worthy event will provide your business exposure to over 500 business leaders, politicians, and community leaders while helping Bosma create programs and opportunities that allow people who are blind or visually impaired live full, independent lives. We look forward to seeing you for a fabulous night in the tropics and thank you in advance for your commitment and support!

About BVOF

Bosma Visionary Opportunities Foundation

Today, there are nearly 160,000 adult Hoosiers who are blind or visually impaired. Bosma Visionary Opportunities Foundation raises much-needed funds for Bosma Enterprises, one of the largest disability organizations in the Midwest with the mission of creating opportunities for people who are blind. 

When you support Bosma’s mission, you’re helping to fund everything from adjustment counseling to mobility training, to job placement — and other important initiatives at Bosma that enable people in your community to maintain their independence in spite of vision loss.
