It’s the second year running for Dining in the Dark and Guide Dogs WA need your help. It’s simple and fun, just host a dinner party with friends and dine either blindfolded or in the dark throughout October and November.
Guide Dogs WA is totally reliant on the support of the community to fund the Guide Dog Program. Dining in the Dark will help raise funds for people with vision impairment as all participants are asked to donate what they would normally spend on a night out.
Chef de Home didn’t hesitate in supporting Dining in the Dark for a second year running and registrants this year will go in a random draw to win a luxurious boutique dining experience in the comfort of their own home. This prize includes a three course dinner for six people valued at $825 and cooked by one of our skilled chefs.
”Through our work we rely heavily on our vision to create food that not only tastes good but looks good too. I can’t even begin to imagine doing what I do without it,” said Ben Munro, Chef de Home Owner/Chef.
“We believe that enjoying food is a social and sensory journey enjoyed on many levels, and look forward to rewarding the palates of the lucky fundraising winner.”
Last years winner, Pia, was so happy with her prize and had some lovely feedback for our team.
“I just wanted to let you know that we had a fabulous night last night enjoying the prize from the Dining in the Dark dinner party. Everyone thought the food and service was fantastic. A couple of my girlfriends wanted to take Ricky home as he was far more attentive than their husbands at filling their wine glasses and making sure that they had something to eat. Brett did an awesome job in the kitchen and we all enjoyed the food that he prepared. We will all be recommending you for future dinner parties, ” said Pia.
It takes two years and over $35,000 to train a Guide Dog and being reliant on community support, every bit helps. Money raised through Dining in the Dark will help fund the breeding costs, food, veterinary care, training and ongoing assessment of Guide Dog puppies, as well as other vital services for Western Australians who are blind or vision impaired.
