Dining in the Dark… with Guide Dogs Tasmania

Will you dare to dine in the dark?

This April, we’re asking you to turn the lights OFF to light up the lives of Tasmanians who are blind or vision impaired.

By hosting your own Dining in the Dark event during April or May, you can raise vital funds for the training of Guide Dog puppies right here in Tasmania.

It’s simple. Provide your guests with a fun dining experience where all or part of the meal is eaten under blindfold, by candlelight or with the lights out. Ask your guests to support your event by donating what they might have spent on a night out to Guide Dogs Tasmania. Their donation will help raise heroes and change lives. What’s not to love about that?

How it works:

Register now to hold an event during April and May and Guide Dogs Tasmania will send you an information pack containing blindfolds and tips on how to hold the event. You can also register by calling Guide Dogs Tasmania on 1800 484 333 during business hours.

Need more blindfolds? Download a PDF of the Dining In The Dark Fundraising Kit and print out as many blindfold, invitation and poster templates as you need. 

Will you be the host with the most?

You can win a pawsome prize simply by being one of the first five to register your Dining in the Dark fundraising event! There are also fantastic prizes to be won for those who raise the most funds from their events.

So what are you waiting for? Register now and start planning your event!
