EVENTS

Attending Lighthouse events throughout the year is a fun way to connect with Central Florida’s community of blind and visually impaired, and offers an opportunity to see first hand the Lighthouse mission in action.

Sight & Sole The WalkFest has evolved over the years from a traditional “awareness walk” to a family friendly street festival. The event is meant to raise funds and bring community awareness to the issues facing Central Florida’s community of blind and visually impaired. There is tons of family entertainment on hand, including live music, face painting, a clown alley, bouncy house and photo booths. There is also a craft beer-garden, tapas-style food samplings, and blindfolded wine and cheese pairings. [EVENT INFORMATION]

Dining in the Dark This unique dining experience is co-hosted with our partner, Second Harvest Food Bank, and offers an immersive experience into a world of smell, taste, sound and texture - all in total darkness! Diners are treated to a multi-course, gourmet meal prepared by professional chefs and are served by members of the Orlando police Department’s SWAT team - who navigate the pitch black room outfitted in night-vision goggles.

Emerging Vision Breakfast This is our annual breakfast fundraiser where attendees experience compelling testimony delivered by Lighthouse clients from the past program year. The event is a wonderful opportunity to recognize and celebrate Lighthouse stakeholders and community partners, large and small, who endeavor to champion the cause of inclusion for Central Floridians who live with blindness and vision loss. [EVENT INFORMATION]

Blink Experience One Wednesday a month, immerse yourself for an hour in the world of vision loss. The Blink Experience is an up-close and personal journey into the program services offered by Lighthouse Central Florida. We guarantee you come away with a changed perspective on what it means to live with vision loss. [EVENT INFORMATION]

Dragon Boat Festival Lighthouse Central Florida first participated in the Walgreens Orlando International Dragon Boat Festival in 2016 with community partner, SunTrust Bank. Lighthouse competed in the mixed team category — meaning our crew of paddlers consisted of a minimum of 10 female paddlers and 10 male paddlers. Five of the females were visually impaired from Lighthouse and five were sighted from SunTrust. A similar breakdown occurred for the male paddlers. We are currently exploring new community partnerships for this event. [EVENT INFORMATION]
