Sensory Fundraiser

New technology launched in Kitchener to help Canadians living withvision loss

The Three Kretans, a Kitchener restaurant is the first restaurant in the area to install beacon navigational technology for people living with vision loss. The beacons, which are installed in the restaurant, transmit information to an app called BlindSquare. The app verbally guides people through the space while providing users with a description of their surroundings.

The CNIB will launch this new technology at our Dining in the Dark fundraiser the evening of Friday March 15, 2019, called "Ignite your senses at Dining in the Dark in support of CNIB".

It’s not unusual to close your eyes and savour a bite of your favourite dish... but have you ever consumed an entire meal that way – replacing sight with touch, taste and texture?

Diners wear blindfolds for a unique, sensory experience in which they can explore their meal in a whole new way! The event will feature entertainment by local comedian Ken Roche, a silent auction and a delicious four-course meal.

For more information, please contact: Anne Marie Grant, Manager of Philanthropy, CNIB Ontario, 1-519-551-5785, is distributed twice weekly; Tuesday and Thursday
